The next blood donor clinic will be at the Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre on November 10 11 am-3 pm This is an important clinic because of the decline in donors during the 'flu season and with the November 11 long weekend. Statutory holidays are a lost day of collections and long weekends often mean extra travel and regrettably, more accidents. With this donor date being on a student study day, your support for this clinic is really needed. Appointments are recommended and may be made by calling 1-888-2-DONATE. Walk-ins are welcome. P.S. Ballots will be handed out at the clinic for appreciation prizes! Allen Veale - UPEI mobile clinic facilitator - 566-0988
