As we move into our fall routines this weekend, Canadian Blood Services would like donating blood to be your “to do” list.
The easy breezy summer season impacts them negatively and so do long weekends. 25,000 donations appointments need to be filled by Monday.

Peter MacDonald has advice on how to book an appointment starting with downloading the GiveBlood app and he says 30 per cent of all appointments are being made this way.
He says you can also book on their website, blood.ca or 1-888-2-DONATE.
Before giving blood, be sure to drink and eat enough.
MacDonald says they want people to enjoy giving blood so they will come back.
You can donate blood in Moncton at Canadian Blood Services at 500 Mapleton Road until 1pm today.
