Letter: Canadian Blood Services calls on Langley donors

Summer is here, and that means the need for blood is once again on the rise

Editor: On behalf of Canadian Blood Services and our territory manager, Nancy Bryan, I would like to thank Langley residents who support Canadian patients by giving blood.

In late April, we announced the need for 200,000 blood donations by July.

Thousands of eligible donors answered the call for support and helped us collect more than 193,000 donations.

Approximately 1,000 donations were collected in Langley, which helped us meet hospital demand.

As some of our regular donors are busy with vacation and family time in the warm summer months, we always welcome new donors.

To book an appointment for any upcoming Langley clinics, download the GiveBlood app, visit blood.ca or call 1 888 2 DONATE (1 888 236 6283).

We can’t thank you enough for the valuable gift you and other gracious donors provide to those in need.

Please know that your time, selflessness and spirit of giving in Langley are appreciated. Somewhere in Canada, a patient will be thankful.

David Patterson

Director, Donor Relations, B.C. and Yukon, Canadian Blood Services
