PARRY SOUND, ON – Canadian Blood Services is asking new and returning donors to book and keep their appointments over the holiday season.
The organization said it is especially important in the last two weeks of December and into January to ensure blood is available.
It added the holiday season is usually a challenging time to collect blood since many donors are busy with seasonal commitments, preventing them from going to drives. The organization said missed or cancelled appointments are also tough to fill around this time.
Parry Sound residents can donate on January third between 2 and 7 p.m. at St. Peters church.
