Wilfrid Laurier University extends a big thank you to everyone in the Laurier community who donated blood and helped the university reach its Partners for Life goal.
Laurier joined Canadian Blood Services as a Partner for Life (PFL) this year and pledged to collect 300 donations. The university reached that goal on Monday, Dec. 6, but still encourages people to donate because the holiday season is a low time for blood donations.
“Congratulations to everyone who dedicated time or gave blood for this initiative,” said Laurier President and Vice-Chancellor Max Blouw. “Laurier is proud to support Canadian Blood Services and the vital work that they do.”
In Canada, someone needs blood almost every minute of every day for surgery or medical treatment. One blood donation, which takes just one hour, can save up to three lives. For more information on how to donate, please click here.
