It can take up to eight blood donors each week to treat someone with leukemia. Canadian Blood Services is giving students, staff, and faculty two chances this week to help meet that need, with donor clinics in the CAW Student Centre on Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 29 and 30.
Organizers hope to collect 152 units of blood over the two days. Both clinics will open at 10:30 a.m., running until 3:30 p.m. Wednesday and 4:30 p.m. Thursday. Walk-in donors are welcome, but appointments will better accommodate donors’ working schedules. To book an appointment, call 1-888-2DONATE (1-888-236-6283).
As with previous clinics, the Department of Human Resources encourages all eligible employees to participate in this worthwhile process and asks any employees who wish to donate to make the necessary arrangements with their supervisors regarding the possibility of extended lunch or break periods.
