Blood Drive at York University planned for July 20

If you are considering the gift of life through a blood donation, Canadian Blood Services will be on campus July 20 from 11am to 4pm. The clinic will take place in Central Square/East Bear Pit.

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 donations from University 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?
• How about if you knew that cancer patients use an average of eight units of blood products, each week, during their treatment?
