Canadian Blood Services are appealing to the people of North Grenville to meet an urgent need for blood donations. They are holding a Blood Donor Clinic on Friday, February 23, at the North Grenville Municipal Centre, from 1.30 to 4 p.m., and from 5 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.
Although all blood types are needed to increase the National Blood Inventory, right now there is an urgent need for more O Negative blood to help patients across Canada. Only 7% of Canadians have type O Negative blood yet 12% of hospital orders are for this type. Due to higher than average demand and lower than expected collections, O Negative donors are needed immediately. .
