Haliburton is being pushed to donate blood after a donor clinic in Bancroft underperformed. Last week’s clinic had a goal of 72 units, but only 61 units were collected.

Canadian Blood Services Territory Manager Andra Stancu says those extra 11 units could have helped treat a leukemia patient for about a week. The next donor clinic in Haliburton is next Monday.

Go to the Canadian Blood Services website to book an appointment, or take an eligibility quiz to see if you can donate or not.
