Gearing up for Bleed & Feed

Canadian Blood Services is asking White Rock residents to take the time and donate blood and a non-perishable food item this holiday season.

For the month of December, CBS will need 9,750 blood donors to give blood at clinics across the province, and Food Banks British Columbia will need enough food to feed 70,000 people.

To make it a bit easier for those looking to donate, the two organizations have come together for the second annual Bleed & Feed which will take place Dec. 7.

The food collected at the White Rock blood donor clinic will go to Sources’ White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank, but for those who can’t make it on Dec. 7, there will be Bleed & Feed collection boxes at the front reception desk at all B.C. blood donor clinics until Dec. 31.

There are still donation appointments available at the White Rock blood donor clinic, 15262 Pacific Ave., on Dec. 7 from 1-8 p.m.

To book an appointment call 1-888-2-DONATE or book online at www.blood.ca
