During the summer, Canadian Blood Services says that it needs almost 200,000 donors to give blood to meet patient and hospital demand.

Summer has also been a challenging time for Canadian Blood Services with vacation time and other summer activities in full swing, donating blood seems to fall onto the back burner.

The need for blood does continue though, and to help boast the blood banks for the summer, Canadian Blood Services will hold a full blood donor clinic in the CAW Student Centre’s Ambassador Auditorium this Tuesday from 11am to 2pm.

For this clinic, Canadian Blood Services will use its appointment system. It encourages donors to book appointments by calling 1-888-2DONATE (1-888-236-6283). Walk-in donors are still welcome but appointments will better accommodate donors’ working schedules.
