Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Thank you for supporting patients

Message from Canadian Blood Services to Penticton and area residents

Thank you for supporting patients

On behalf of all of us at Canadian Blood Services, I would like to thank Penticton residents who support patients in Canada by giving blood.

Generous donors in Penticton have made a vital difference in the lives of thousands of patients who needed blood products. On average, someone in Canada requires blood or blood products every 60 seconds. And while one in two Canadians is eligible to donate, only one in 60 does.

This is what makes your commitment and generosity so appreciated.

Community volunteers from Penticton are also an important part of our clinic team. We appreciate and value their time and support in ensuring Canadian patients get the blood products they need.

Canadian Blood Services operates regularly scheduled clinics in Penticton and we will be back again later this month. New donors are always welcome.

To book an appointment for any upcoming clinic, download the GiveBlood app available for iOS on the App Store or for Android on Google Play, call 1 888 2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283) or visit blood.ca.

Somewhere in our community, a patient will be thankful for the precious time you’ve helped give them to spend with their family this holiday season.
