The clinic will be held at the Drumheller and District Agricultural Society’s Rodeo Grounds from 12 to 3 p.m., then 4 to 7 p.m. on June 24.
Adding one more hour to make the clinics length a total of six hours, and operating as a split clinic in three hour intervals with a one hour break in between, Canadian Blood Services hopes to collect additional blood donations and help more patients.
Drumheller blood donor clinics are well supported and consistently meet Canadian Blood Services’ donation goals. As a result of the clinics’ success there has been an increased demand from donors for more appointment times.
The additional hour will hopefully add 30 more donations per clinic, earning 180 a year, which will help to save 540 additional lives.
Canadian Blood Services thanks their generous community partnership with Drumheller and Distric Agricultural Society and all the volunteers.
Canadian Blood Services asks current and new blood donors to help fill these appointment times and continue to help them meet the needs of patients in the province.
