They are in urgent need of donations.

Canadian Blood Services is pleading for people to give blood, as the national inventory remains at “critically low levels.”

The organization says ten thousand donations are needed by March 10 to meet patient needs this spring.

Chief Supply Chain Officer Rick Prinzen said they’ve seen increased help since putting out an appeal February 20 for 35,000 donors, but it’s not enough.

You can book an appointment by going to blood.ca, by downloading the GiveBlood app, or calling 1-888-2-DONATE.

Walk-in appointments are also available.
