Blood donors needed over July long weekend

Canadian Blood Services is looking for donations in the Regina area.

They have 150 appointments available over the July 1st long weekend, and would like them filled to ensure a steady supply of blood for Canadians.

Territory manager Aaron Barlow says log weekends typically lead to a drop in donation appointments.

“They’re pre-occupied, they got other things going on, they’ve got destinations they want to get to, so around long weekends we see a little bit of a decrease in the appointments, and we need people to make appointments and keep their appointments so we can ensure we have a healthy inventory of blood and blood products for Canadian patients,” said Barlow.

Anyone looking to book an appointment can call 1-888-2-DONATE, visit the Give Blood mobile app, or book online.
