Keep your blood clinic appointments says Blood Services Canada

Clinics in Colwood Wednesday and Thursday at Church of the Advent

Canadian Blood Services urges West Shore residents who booked an appointment to give blood to honour those appointments.

Upcoming mobile clinics at Church of the Advent, 510 Mount View Ave. are today, July 31 and Thursday, Aug. 1 from 1 to 6 p.m.

During the summer months, donors change their routines, take vacations and are involved with outdoor activities, so donating blood is not always top of mind. However, the need for blood does not take a summer vacation.

To re-schedule or make an appointment call 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283).
