Mayor – Media Blood Donor Clinic being held on September 4

August 27, 2012

The Annual Mayor-Media Blood Donor Clinic will take place on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012 at the Cornwall Civic Complex (Salons A, B & C) from 12:00 pm to 3:30 pm, and from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Canadian Blood Services is hoping for over 300 donors that day to roll up their sleeves and give blood.

“During the summer months, we all change our routines and take vacations, so donating blood isn’t always top of mind. Meanwhile, daily in our region, there are hospital patients who can’t take vacations requiring blood transfusions for surgeries, cancer treatments and other procedures,” notes Mayor Bob Kilger.

“Each year, the Mayor-Media Blood Donor Clinic attracts a large turnout and helps meet hospital requirements for blood. I am hoping this year will be the same. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the members of the media for their continuing support in sponsoring the clinic, which is a summer tradition in Cornwall.”

To book an appointment, please call 1-888 2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283) for service in English or 1-866-JE DONNE (1-866-533-6663) for service in French.
