Blood donation drive at York University, July 18 and 19

If you are considering the gift of life through a blood donation, Canadian Blood Services will be on the Keele Campus July 18 and 19 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The clinic will take place in Central Square/East Bear Pit.

Each year, the York University community shows its spirit by saving lives through hosting Canadian Blood Services on campus. On average, one unit of blood helps three people, so the donations made by community members will be used to help hundreds of people in the Greater Toronto Area.

What would it take to make you give blood?

  • If you knew you knew you could save a life, would you?
  • If you knew only 3.5 per cent of eligible Canadians gave blood, would you give?
  • If you knew that patients in our area hospitals use at least 650 to 700 units of blood each day, would you help them by donating blood?
  • If you knew that cancer patients use an average of eight units of blood products, each week, during their treatment, would you donate?

For more information on how to become a donor, or to schedule an opportunity to donate during one of their many clinics throughout the community, visit www.bloodservices.ca or call 1-888-2-DONATE.
