North Okanagan residents are being asked to roll up their sleeves and give the gift of life at Christmas.
Canadian Blood Services has launched its annual Holiday Miracle campaign and a blood donor clinic will be held in Vernon Dec. 19 and 20.
“Holiday miracles do exist,” said Gayle Voyer, a partnership specialist with Canadian Blood Services. “The generosity of one stranger to another in our clinics often means helping to save a stranger’s life.”
Upcoming clinics at Vernon’s Trinity United Church include:
Dec. 19 from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. – nine appointments open.
Dec. 20 from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. – 16 appointments open.
Residents can book a donation appointment at www.blood.ca or calling 1-888-236-6283.
