Do two good deeds at once

Do two good deeds at once by donating a non-perishable food item when donating blood at a Ladysmith blood donor clinic this holiday season.

Do two good deeds at once by donating a non-perishable food item when donating blood at a Ladysmith blood donor clinic this holiday season.

In December, Canadian Blood Services will need 9,750 blood donors to give blood at clinics across the province, while Food Banks British Columbia will need enough food to feed 70,000 people.

Bleed and Feed food collection boxes will be at the front reception desk at all B.C. blood donor clinics until Dec. 31. Food collected at each clinic will go to that community’s local food bank, and when the Canadian Blood Services comes to Ladysmith at the end of the month, all food collected will be donated to the Ladysmith Food Bank.

Donation appointments are still available at Canadian Blood Services’ Ladysmith clinic, which takes place Dec. 29 from 1-7:45 p.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church at 1135 Fourth Ave.

Donors can book appointments to give blood by calling 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283) or by booking online at blood.ca.
