Blood donation drive

Every blood donor will mark themselves as donating in support of police, fire, ambulance or search and rescue, at 103-1865 Dilworth Dr.

Canadian Blood Services is encouraging blood donors to support their local emergency personnel.

The Sirens for Life campaign is on until Oct. 31. Every donor will mark themselves on a board as donating in support of police, fire, ambulance or search and rescue.

“We’re just doing a fun little tally in our clinic each and every week where you can say where your donation is going to,” explained Canadian Blood Services territory manager Gayle Voyer.

“It’s just a fun, friendly little competition where the community can say thanks. We also track our partners, which include many of the emergency personnel in our community, so we’ll track their donations throughout this program as well.”

The Kelowna Blood Donor Clinic is located at 103-1865 Dilworth Dr.
