As the Victoria Day long weekend begins, you can get a head start on next week’s Canadian Blood Services donor event in Parry Sound by booking ahead, online.

This year, CBS is sporting a new look and branding as part of its plan to renew donor commitment as the agency enters its 21st year.

Launched in the fall last year to celebrate CBS’s 20th anniversary, Territory Manager Elaine St. Pierre says the new visual identity represents the agency’s perpetual evolution, continual improvement, and endless connections.

St.Pierre adds, “After all, we are more than just blood”.

“We manage life essentials for transfusion and transplantation, including blood, plasma, stem cells, and organs and tissues”.

To check if you are eligible, St. Pierre suggests taking the Eligibility Quiz on the Canadian Blood Services website where you can then book your own appointment.

St. Pierre urges donors, “As spring has now sprung, what better time to renew your commitment to save lives and encourage those around you to do the same”.

The next Blood Donor Event in Parry Sound takes places on Friday, May 24th between 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm at St. Peter’s Church-Knights of Columbus Hall at 52 Church Street.
