The football club has teamed up with Canadian Blood Services to hold a blood drive today at 777 William Avenue.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., anyone who shows up to roll up their sleeve and donate will receive two tickets to the next home game at Investors Group Field as the Bombers host the Toronto Argonauts (while quantities last).

“We are very proud to partner with Canadian Blood Services to bleed blue with this campaign, and to encourage Manitobans to help save lives by donating blood,” said Hannah Pratt, director of community relations with the Blue Bombers.

Maurice Leggett and Ian Wild will be at the clinic from 10 a.m. to noon and Jesse Briggs and Derek Jones will be at the clinic from noon to 2 p.m. to sign autographs for anyone who donates blood. In addition, donors can enter to win a Bomber prize pack.
