Canadian Blood Services has put the call out for immediate blood donations across the country.
CBS says more than 35,000 donors are needed by spring break, March 10.
“There are thousands of open appointments across Canada over the next two weeks,” said Rick Prinzen, Canadian Blood Services’ chief supply chain officer.
“As we emerge from a particularly challenging winter, we’re asking Canadians to donate blood so that all patients have access to blood when they need it.”
Appointments can be booked online at Blood.ca, using the GiveBlood app or by calling 1-888-2-DONATE.
