Blood donor clinics in Timmins next week
There are still 81 openings at a blood donor clinic scheduled for oct. 16, 17 and 18. The Canadian Blood services donor clinic, which will take place at Paroisse st. Dominique Church hall, still needs people to fill appointments. “one-in-two Canadians will need blood at some point in their life, yet less than 4% of the population donates,” said Joanna Drake, territory manager with CBS in an email. “on behalf of hospital patients, we are asking all eligible residents of Timmins to roll up their sleeves to donate blood.” The clinics are being held monday, oct. 16 from 4 to 8 p.m.; Tuesday, oct. 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 4 to 8 p.m.; and wednesday, oct. 18 from noon to 3 p.m. appointments can be made at blood.ca or 1-888-2Donate.
