Canadian Blood Services is putting out a call for new and current blood donors to help return the national inventory to an optimal level.

Canada’s blood supply has declined throughout the summer and and now they are looking to top it up. Each week, a minimum of 16,000 units of blood need to be collected for use in a range of life-saving procedures, such as surgeries and cancer treatments.

“When people make an appointment, they’re making an appointment to save a life,” says Michael Betel, director of donor relations. “It can take many donations to help a patient. For example, it can take up to eight donors a week to help someone with leukemia. “The feeling you get from donating blood and helping to save a life is worth every minute. We invite Windsor residents to make an appointment to donate blood today.”

The Windsor clinic is located at 3909 Grand Marais Road East and is open on:

  • Tuesday from 3pm to 7pm
  • Wednesday from 3pm to 7pm
  • Thursday from 11:30am to 7:30pm
  • Friday from 8am to 12pm
  • Saturday from 8am to 12pm

To book an appointment to give blood you can visit blood.ca.  Walk-ins are also welcome.
