Blood Donors Needed

Canadian Blood Services is dealing with high demand from hospitals across the country.

Territory Manager Chris Hardy says donations typically decrease over the long holiday weekends with people busy or travelling. He says however the demand for blood remains constant.

Hardy says while there’s a continuous need for all blood types, there’s always a great need for O negative blood.

He says they’ve also launched a mobile app to give users a quick and easy way to schedule an appointment.

The Sarnia Donor Clinic located in the Bayside Centre is open Tuesday through Friday.
