Blood drive at York University July 17 and 18

Blood donor drive

If you are considering the gift of life through a blood donation, Canadian Blood Services will be on campus on Tuesday, July 17 and Wednesday, July 18, from 10:30am-3pm. The clinic will take place in Central Square – Ross Building.

Each year, members of the York University community participate in Canadian Blood Services drives that take place on campus.  On average, one unit of blood helps three people, so donations are important as they 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 percent 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?
  • How about if you knew that cancer patients use an average of eight units of blood products each week during their treatments, would you help?

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 the Canadian Blood Services website, or call 1-888-2-DONATE.
