Alumni Association invites alumni, friends, and community to donate blood

The University of Windsor Alumni Association will adopt Windsor’s Canadian Blood Services Clinic for a blood drive Jan. 23 to 28 and is inviting the community to consider making a life-saving donation.

As a Canadian Blood Services Partner for Life, the university community is also invited to join the Alumni Association’s team to have their donations counted toward its 2023 pledge.

To encourage participation, the Alumni Association will provide T-shirts to all Partners for Life team members who donate at the Windsor Canadian Blood Services location during the drive period. Participants who take a photo and tag the Alumni Association’s social media accounts (@uwinalumni) between Jan. 23 and 28 will also be entered into a random draw to win a wellness prize pack valued at over $100.
