Save lives and donate November 18th when the Bloodmobile visits YVR

As we approach the holiday season, giving is on everyone’s mind – so why not give the ultimate gift and save a life?

Canadian Blood Services is encouraging airport employees and travellers to get on board and save lives this Friday (November 18) when it deploys the Bloodmobile, a donor clinic on wheels. The Bloodmobile will be parked on the curb outside of the International Terminal on Level 2, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Airport employees wishing to donate are encouraged to book an appointment in advance, by calling 1 888 2 DONATE or by booking online at donatenow.blood.ca. Be sure to mention you want to book an appointment at the “YVR Bloodmobile” on November 18.

Drop-in appointments are limited so be sure to call and book in advance. 

The blood donation process takes about one hour. Participants register with a piece of identification, have their blood tested for iron levels using a fingertip sample and answer a series of questions to determine eligibility before donating. After the donation has been collected, participants relax with a snack in the mobile clinic’s refreshment area.

Canadian Blood Services Bloodmobile travels around the Metro Vancouver area and collects up to 8,000 donations every year. For more information, visit www.blood.ca.
