COMMUNITY EVENTS

Right now more new blood donors are needed – in fact in 2017 over 100,00 are needed, that’s 300 every day.  At the Ottawa Blood Donor Clinic on Carling Avenue 3,000 new donors are needed in 2017 to help support patients right here in our community.
 
Come out Wednesday, June 14 to Parliament Hill for World Blood Donor Day and find out your blood type for free.  There will be a Canadian Blood Services booth set up and the goal is to find out 150 people’s blood types for Canada’s 150th Birthday.  Find out if you’re an A, B, AB or O and get a free t-shirt with your blood type.  Canadian Blood Services will be there to answer any questions you may have about donating blood.
 
You can have a BIG impact in 2017 with a small act like donated blood, patients right here in Ottawa are depending on you.  As Canada celebrates its 150th Birthday, you can help celebrate life itself by becoming a blood donor before Canada Day!
