Canadian Blood Services imageCanadian Blood Services needs donors to maintain a healthy supply of lifesaving blood for patients like Cameron.

Call on to lie down and bleed awhile

The need for blood doesn’t take a holiday, but seasonal commitments and travel can pose a challenge for donors, notes Canadian Blood Services.

It asks donors to consider inviting a loved or friend to join them for a donation — making saving lives the greatest gift.

The Windsor Blood Donor Centre at 3909 Grand Marais Rd. E. is closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day, but otherwise continuing operation through the holiday period.

The local clinic has a target of collecting 1,460 units before the end of the year. It will welcome donors:

  • Monday and Wednesday, 3 to 7 p.m.
  • Thursday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon

With the exception of Boxing Day, Dec. 26: 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
