Roll up your sleeve, save lives

Canadian Blood Services seeking donations to top up supply.

Canadian Blood Services is asking 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 it’s time 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.

The Surrey blood donor clinic at Unit C2, 15285 101 Ave. is open Wednesday to Friday and alternating Saturdays to receive your much-needed donation.

To book an appointment to give blood, use the Give Blood App or visit blood.ca.

If possible, bring a friend or family member to donate.

Walk-ins are also welcome.
