Communications, Public Affairs & Marketing
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.
Laurier will hold a mobile blood donor clinic at its Waterloo campus Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2011. The clinic takes place from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Senate and Board Chamber. You can sign up for the clinic today, Monday Feb. 7, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Concourse. Drop-ins will also be accepted the day of the clinic.
Laurier’s Brantford campus will hold a mobile blood donor clinic Wednesday, Feb. 16, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Student Centre, room B106.
Laurier is part of Canadian Blood Services’ Partners for Life (PFL) program, and has pledged to collect 300 donations this year. Students, staff, faculty, alumni, spouses and friends can donate blood at their convenience by calling 1-888-2-DONATE and quoting Laurier’s PFL ID#: WILF001529.
“The Laurier community strongly supports Canadian Blood Services and the vital work that they do,” said Laurier President Max Blouw. “Our students have a history of giving back to the community, and they have been participating in blood clinics for many years. We are proud of their contributions and the fact that they lead by example.”
