Canadian Blood Services is asking eligible Canadians to “give a holiday miracle” by donating blood this season.

In Red Deer region, the organization projects it needs 385 donors to provide blood between Dec. 24 and Jan. 5 in order to help meet hospital demand.

A mobile clinic is being held at Sylvan Lake’s community centre on Saturday (Dec. 29) for those who would like to donate.

Please visit their website www.blood.ca or call 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283) to book an appointment today.

“We’d like to thank Canadians who took the time to donate blood so far this holiday season, but we need that generosity to continue through the end of the year, particularly the days after Christmas right up to the first week of the New Year,” said Kaelyn Smith, community development coordinator for Canadian Blood Services. “As the year draws to an end, do something that embodies the spirit and generosity of the season — give blood. It costs you nothing, and it’ll give someone a holiday miracle.”
