Blood donations impacted by multiple blasts of winter weather this month. Canadian Blood Services is reminding donors and potential donors in Barrie of the importance of booking an appointment to give blood right away and that clinics are open over the holidays.
The winter months come with the added challenges inclement weather creates. As donors in many areas contend with poor weather, it’s even more important for other current and new donors to make and keep their appointments.
As a result of poor weather across the country, Canadian Blood Services has had to cancel a number of clinics and has also seen a decline in the number of donors able to attend clinics.
Book an appointment now to donate before December 31 and bring your friends and family with you. At the Barrie blood donor clinic (231 Bayview Dr #100, Barrie), there are still 183 OPEN APPOINTMENTS between Dec 25 – 31 left to fill.
Make a resolution to give life now and in the New Year. To book an appointment, locate a clinic, check your eligibility, and more, use the Give Blood App, visit blood.ca or call 1 888 2 Donate.
