Due to extreme weather this winter, Canadian Blood Services has cancelled 25 blood donor clinics across southwestern Ontario. This has impacted collections and now the agency needs higher-than-normal support from the community to meet patient needs.
Canadian Blood Services sent out a message today asking the public to "Please support our clinic on Monday, March 3, at St. Marys Pyramid Recreation Centre from 4-8 p.m., and future clinics in your community."
Anyone wanting to donate blood is encouraged to "make an appointment to save a life" by visiting Canadian Blood Services online at www.blood.ca or by calling 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283). Walk-ins are also welcome at Monday's Pyramid Centre blood donor clinic.
