For the first time this year, Haliburton’s blood donor clinic did not meet its target.

Canadian Blood Services was able to add 60 pints to its reserves on Monday, which is short of its target of 72 pints.

C.B.S. Territory Manager Andra Stancu told the My Haliburton Now newsroom she is hopeful the difference can be made up at the next clinic.

The first donor clinic of 2018 will be January 15th at the Haliburton Legion.
