Rockland Blood Donor Clinics

For 20 years our Council has supported Canadian Blood Services by sponsoring the Rockland blood donor clinics. After donors complete the donation process we provide care and refreshments to ensure they have an enjoyable experience. Finally we encourage them to attend the next clinic where familiar faces will be waiting to greet them. This is an important event for our Council.

Over the years our Council has received many awards for supporting Canadian Blood Services.

 

The April 2022 Blood Donor Clinic was held at the River Rock Inn in Rockland. The Covid-19 pandemic restrictions mean that only 2 volunteers were required. PGK Carl McDiarmid and his wife Bev assisted with donor check-in and refreshments. This was a very successful clinic with 108 attendees and 90 units of blood collected.

The October 2020 Blood Donor Clinic was held at the River Rock Inn in Rockland. The Covid-19 pandemic restrictions meant that only 2 volunteers were required. DGK Tim Halderson and his niece Mireille assisted with donor check-in and refreshments. Tim did a great job organizing the snacks! This was a very successful clinic with 109 units of blood collected.
