Canadian Blood Services is focused on a critical need for blood donations.
The organization is urging Islanders to make an appointment right away to donate before July 1st.
Canadian Blood Services recently called on Canadians to fill more than 150,000 donation appointments by Canada s 150th birthday to ensure that there is enough blood to meet patient needs throughout the summer. But, as of today, they re not on track to meet that target.
Canadian Blood Services is urging Islanders to put blood donation at the top of their list of things to do.
One-in-two Canadians will need blood at some point in their life.
