Drumheller came through once again with a successful turnout at the blood clinic on July 18.
"We want to say a huge thank you to all the drumheller residents that came together in giving life at our clinic," said Lisa Castro with Canadian Blood Services. "We had an amazing turnout we had about 149 donors actually attend and of that we were able to collect 112 percent of our collection targets."
They collected 134 units of blood, while their target was for 120 units.
"As we head into August all blood types are still needed, there is a particular need that remains for O negative blood donors because it is the type that everyone is compatible with," noted Castro.
"The need for blood remains and every minute of everyday a patient in Canada does need blood so we do hope that the existing donors do continue to give as much support as they can and we know that new donors are critical to meeting Canada's future blood needs so we do invite those new donors to step up," explained Castro.
The next clinic in Drumheller is scheduled to take place on October 10 from 3:00p.m until 8:00p.m at the Badlands Community Facility.
