Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment and Canadian Blood Services is partnering up to host Ontario’s biggest single blood donor clinic. The goal: to collect 500 units of blood in one day. That means we need donations from 500 people. It’s happening at the ACC on Monday, June 20, from 10am-7pm. Why? Because we need to raise awareness and educate. Despite the fact that 50% of the Canadian population can donate, only 3.7% do. In Toronto, only 1.8% donate. Toronto needs to import 50,000 units of blood a year to meet the needs of patients in this region. So we need Torontonians to step up, rally together and donate. Because let’s face it – the status of one’s health can be unpredictable and you never know when you or someone you love will need it. Call 1-888-2-DONATE to book an appointment at The Big Save.
