Bleed & Feed three more times in Tri-City
Canadian Blood Services (CBS) and Food Banks British Columbia want people to donate blood and food this month.
The two organizations hope the Bleed and Feed blood donor clinics this month will go a long way towards meeting their donation goals: 9,750 blood donors for CBS and enough food for the province’s food banks to feed 70,000 people.
Bleed & Feed food collection boxes will be at the front desk of all B.C. blood donor clinics through Dec. 31. In the Tri-Cities, food collected at clinics will go to the Share food bank. Remaining clinics in the Tri-Cities include:
• Dec. 8, 1:30 to 8 p.m. — Mundy Park Christian Fellowship (2600 Austin Ave.);
• Dec. 16, 12:15 to 6:45 p.m. — Coquitlam Christian Centre (2665 Runnel Dr.).
• Dec. 29, 1:30 to 8 p.m. — Cornerstone Community Church (1415 Noons Creek Dr.).
There are walk-in appointments available at all clinics but you run the risk of waiting. You can also book by calling 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283).
