Blood donor drive

If you are considering the gift of life through a blood donation, Canadian Blood Services will be on campus from March 23 to 26 from 11am to 4pm and March 27 from 10:30am to 2pm. The clinic will take place in Central Square.

Each year, York University shows its community spirit by saving lives through hosting Canadian Blood Services on campus.  On average, one unit of blood helps three people, so the donations 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?
  • If you knew that patients in our area hospitals use at least 650 to 700 units of blood each day, would you help by donating blood?
  • How about if you knew that cancer patients use an average of 8 units of blood products, each week, during their treatment?
