Blood Donation Clinic Open at Convention Centre Today

By Sarah Klein

Canadian Blood Services will be setup at the Winnipeg Convention Centre today to commemorate the long standing history with the Canadian Forces.

Approximately 145 blood donations will be collected in the city to honour Canada’s troops this Remembrance Day.

The donor clinic will begin at 11:30 a.m. immediately following the Remembrance Day ceremony, and go until 3:30 p.m. on the second floor.

“Dedicating your gift of life to a member of the Canadian Forces is a meaningful way to say thank you to the thousands of service men and women who continue to sacrifice their lives for our country,” said Tracy Lamoureux, community development coordinator for Canadian Blood Services.
