Langley blood donor clinics occuring over the holidays

The need for blood donations doesn't stop because of the busy holiday season.

Canadian Blood Services is reminding donors and potential donors in Langley of the importance of booking an appointment to give blood right away and that clinics are open over the holidays. There’s a clinic Dec. 24 at Trinity Western University’s cafeteria from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and it’s open to the public. The goal is to collect 101 blood donations.

The winter months come with the added challenges inclement weather creates. As donors in many areas contend with poor weather, it’s even more important for other current and new donors to make and keep their appointments.

As a result of poor weather across the country, Canadian Blood Services has had to cancel a number of clinics and has also seen a decline in the number of donors able to attend clinics.

Book an appointment now to donate before December 31 and bring your friends and family with you.

To book an appointment, locate a mobile clinic, check your eligibility, and more, use the Give Blood App or visit blood.ca.

Canadian Blood Services manages the national supply of blood, blood products and stem cells, and related services for all the provinces and territories (excluding Quebec).
