Canadian Blood Services Educating Public About Need To Donate

During the busy summer season, Canadian Blood Services are continuously encouraging donations of any blood type. Only 3.5 percent of the population give blood. In Peterborough, we have a permanent clinic located at 55 George Street, as well as various mobile clinics located throughout the city. Please call 1-888-2-DONATE to book an appointment.

On Labour Day weekend, "The Mayor Daryl Bennett Blood Drive" will be taking place as he campaigns for Peterborough to "Rally Together to Save Lives."
