Morinville – although the weather is getting colder and long sleeves are the order of the day, Canadian Blood Services (CBS) are hoping Morinville residents won’t mind rolling up their sleeves next week.
The fall clinic, sponsored by the Morinville Lions Club and Knights of Columbus will be held Sept. 28 from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the Seniors’ Rendez-Vous Centre on 104 Street.
Canadian Blood Services sets its goal for Morinville at 85 blood donations, each time it comes, but Lion Francis Fryters said he like to see more than 90 units collected this time.
The blood donation process takes approximately one hour from start to finish. Donors must be 17 years of age, in good health and feeling well on the day the donation is made. Full eligibility requirements can be found on the Canadian Blood Services web site – (blood.ca).
To book an appointment at the Morinville clinic phone 1-888-2-donate.
Canadian Blood Services will be back in Morinville three more times this year after Tuesday’s clinic: Oct. 26, Nov. 30 and Dec. 21.
