Canadian Blood Services is looking for “long weekend heroes” to donate blood, platelets and plasma this Canada Day weekend.
The Sudbury plasma donor centre at 900 Lasalle Boulevard has 118 open appointments to fill over the long weekend.
Donor centre hours are:
- Saturday, July 2 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Monday, July 4 from 7 a.m. to 7.30 p.m.
- Closed on Friday and Sunday over the July 1 long weekend
“Over the past few weeks many people across Canada have come forward to fill open donation appointments,” the organization said. “Patients are relying on new and past donors to make lifesaving donations a part of their routine as people across Canada resume pre-pandemic activities.”
Plasma donated at the Sudbury plasma donor centre is used to make medications called plasma protein products.
