As residents prepare for the long weekend and holiday gatherings, Canadian Blood Services would like people to also make time to give blood.
The need for blood and platelet donation never takes a holiday. While donations generally decrease over long weekends, the CBS needs donors to book appointments leading up to, during and right after statutory holidays in order to maintain a strong supply for patients in need.
The Surrey Clinic is located at Unit C2-15285 101 Ave. It will be open Thursday, April 2, 1-7 p.m., and April 3 and 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
