Letter: A selfless spirit of giving

Cloverdale donors helped Canadian Blood Services meet demand during summer blood drive

On behalf of Canadian Blood Services and our Territory Manager, Nancy Bryan, I would like to thank Cloverdale residents who support Canadian patients by giving blood.

In late April, we announced the need for 200,000 blood donations by July.

Thousands of eligible donors answered the call for support and helped us collect more than 193,000 donations. Approximately 100 donations were collected in Cloverdale, which helped us meet hospital demand.

As some of our regular donors are busy with vacation and family time in the warm summer months, we always welcome new donors. To book an appointment for any upcoming Cloverdale clinics, download the GiveBlood app, visit blood.ca or call 1-888-2-DONATE (1 888 236 6283).

We can’t thank you enough for the valuable gift you and other gracious donors provide to those in need.

Please know that your time, selflessness and spirit of giving in Cloverdale are appreciated.

Somewhere in Canada, a patient will be thankful.
