Thanks for blood

On behalf of Canadian Blood Services, I would like to thank Parksville residents who support Canadian patients by giving blood.

On behalf of Canadian Blood Services and our Territory Manager Ann Chabert, I would like to thank Parksville 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 and helped us collect more than 193,000 donations. Approximately 200 donations were collected in Parksville, 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 upcoming 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 Parksville are appreciated. Somewhere in Canada, a patient will be thankful.
