Canadian Blood Services hosting St. Catharines clinics as donations expected to drop during holiday

CKTB - NEWS - Blood Donation

As many Canadians prepare to celebrate the Thanksgiving long weekend, Canadian Blood Services is asking everyone to spare a thought for patients in need of donated blood.

Two clinics will be held in the Henley Plaza in St. Catharines this weekend - the first on Saturday from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. and the second on Monday from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, appointments are needed to donate. To book an appointment download the GiveBlood app or call 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283)

Canadian Blood Services representatives say donations often decrease during long weekends, but the demand for blood never stops.
