If rising temperatures put a spring in your step, mask up and make your way to a Canadian Blood Services location to donate blood if you’re able.
Wilfrid Laurier University is a Canadian Blood Services’ Partner for Life and makes an annual pledge of blood donations. This year, Laurier has pledged 375 blood donations, a pledge the university hopes to meet and exceed with continued support from Laurier blood donors. In 2020, Laurier donors contributed a record-breaking 477 units of blood during Canadian Blood Services clinics, exceeding the university’s pledge of 350.
“Laurier’s blood donors help to keep our communities strong,” says Carleen Carroll, assistant vice-president: External Relations at Laurier. “With brighter days ahead, I encourage Laurier faculty, staff, students and alumni to donate blood if they are able.”
