Quarterly Canadian Blood Services Donor Clinic

April 18 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pm

Quarterly Canadian Blood Services Donor Clinic

We’ll reserve a table at Eau Claire Joeys at 11:30 for lunch with blood donations starting at 1:00 pm.

There is FREE underground parking at Eau Claire with entrance off 3rd Street SW.  I will lead us to the Canadian Blood Services (CBS) reception desk at Eau Claire after lunch.

The whole donation process includes an on-line pre-donation questionnaire which can be done before you leave home or when you arrive at the clinic. It asks about general health, medications you take, out of county travel, etc.

Once you arrive at the Canadian Blood Services (CBS) donation clinic, currently on the 2nd level of the Eau Claire Mall, there is screening interview including ID check, finger prick hemoglobin level check, & weigh in. This is followed by the actual donation via a needle from a vein in your arm (about 10 minutes or less) and short rest, drink, snack and talk some more.

For those of you still working for a living, most employers will contribute an hour off with pay, just ask your boss. Many firms already participate in the CBS Partners for Life program.

Please register with me (Glen Cook) at gcook@bmwcsa.ca  AND with Canadian Blood Services at  www.blood.ca no later than Monday April 15th.
