City of Armstrong staff and council have issued a challenge to residents.
Fill every available appointment before the next blood donor clinic opens at St. Joseph’s Church in September.
“Everyone knows someone who may have been in need or may be affected by a need for blood services,” said Mayor Chris Pieper. “Canadian Blood Services is providing an important service to our community and participating in blood drives or donor clinics such as this is necessary for the consistency of the service in Armstrong.”
Take this two-minute quiz to find out if you are eligible to book your next appointment.
Pieper said council and staff will be filling at least 20 appointments to donate.
According to the Canadian Blood Services, blood and blood products are a critical part of everyday medical care including major surgeries, medical procedures, cancer treatments and managing diseases and disorders.
As a blood donor you form a vital link in Canada’s lifeline, helping many Canadians wake up healthy each day.
