Summer is here and for many it means beach getaways and camping trips! But it also means an increased need for vital donations of blood and plasma products for patients across the province, who find themselves fighting for their lives.
Power 97, in partnership with Canadian Blood Services, asks you to consider making a blood or plasma donation part of your summer plans with our ‘Pints For Pints’ initiative! Right now, when you book an appointment to donate on the Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday of the August long weekend (August 3-5, 7), you’ll receive a sweet summer treat (while supplies last, no donation required) from our friends at Prairie West Ice Cream in the form of ice cream!
Choose from 1 of 4 summer fun flavours including Coconut, Mango, Green Tea and Honeydew Melon – available in select international frozen food sections of Superstore and No Frills locations.
Click here to book your appointment today, or use the GiveBlood app or call 1-888-2-DONATE. Same day appointments are often available.
Before you leave for summer vacay, cool down at the donor centre by joining Canada’s Lifeline. On average, someone in Canada needs blood every 60 seconds! By donating blood or plasma, you can help to change and save lives! Treat yourself and thousands of patients in the process!
