To help welcome Canadian Blood Services to the neighbourhood, the ECCA is holding a blood drive from November 15 to 30, 2017. The permanent donor clinic relocated to the Eau Claire Market in July, so it's easier than ever to give the gift of life close to home. The Eau Claire clinic is the largest in Canada, with 20 donor beds. The market's underground parking garage even has free designated stalls for donors.
The ECCA kicked off the blood drive by holding our November meeting at the new clinic and several board members rolled up their sleeves to donate. Did you know that every 60 seconds someone in Canada needs blood? You can read stories of real people helped by blood donations. Donors from 17 to any age are welcome - there is no longer an upper age limit. Take a quick quiz to find out if you are eligible to donate.
To make an appointment, call 1 888 2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283), book at www.blood.ca or use the GiveBlood app. Let the ECCA know about your donation through Twitter (@eauclaireca and ), Facebook (www.facebook.com/eauclaireca) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Let's see how many donations we can make as a community. Remember, it's in you to give!
