Canadian Blood Services Mobile Clinics

REGINA, December 1, 2008 --  As we move into the season of giving, Canadian Blood Services would like to remind you that there is no more precious gift than donating blood in order to save lives. “The holiday season is the perfect time to become a blood donor,” said Donna Wunderlich, Director of Donor and Clinic Services for the Prairie region of Canadian Blood Services.  “The need for blood and blood products remains high throughout the year, but it is always especially poignant during the holidays.  What better way to show the true spirit of the season than by helping to save a life.”    Wunderlich noted that each blood donation actually has the potential to help as many as three patients. “Canadian Blood Services is able to separate each unit into red cells, plasma and platelets and provide these products to patients in need,” she said. According to Canadian Blood Services, it is estimated that one in two Canadians is eligible to donate blood, yet only one in 60 actually does. “Quite simply, we need new donors,” said Wunderlich. For more information on blood donation, or to make an appointment to donate, please call Canadian Blood Services, toll-free at 1 888 2 DONATE (1888 236 6283). Canadian Blood Services is a national, not-for-profit charitable organization that manages the blood supply in all provinces and territories (except Quebec) and oversees OneMatch -the Stem Cell and Marrow Network. A dedicated team of 4,800 staff and 17,000 volunteers enable us to operate 40 permanent collection sites and more than 20,000 donor clinics annually. While Canadian Blood Services is a non-governmental organization, it receives operational funding from the Provincial and Territorial Ministers of Health and is regulated by Health Canada.
