Canadian Blood Services encourages all eligible donors in Windsor to book and honour their appointments to donate blood, platelets, and plasma before and during Thanksgiving.

At 3909 Grand Marais Road East in Windsor, there are 85 open appointments to fill at donation events that run:

  •  Friday, October 7th from 8:00am to 12:00pm
  • Saturday, October 8th from 8:00am to 12:00pm
  • Monday, October 10th from 3:00pm to 7:00pm

Officials say that without the ongoing dedication of blood, platelet, and plasma donors, and those who register to be a stem cell, or organ and tissue donor, patients in Canada wouldn’t have access to lifesaving care where and when they need it.

Cancer patients, accident victims, and people with rare, life-threatening, chronic, and genetic conditions rely on blood, platelets, and plasma donations every day.

Thousands more new plasma and blood donors are needed across the country. Book your appointment online at blood.ca, on the GiveBlood app, or by calling 1 888 2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283).
