National Volunteer Week

During National Volunteer Week (April 6-12), Canadian Blood Services thanks and celebrates the more than 17,000 volunteers who donated 210,000 hours of their time in the last year to support Canada’s blood system.

Volunteers help make saving lives possible. We truly appreciate the talent and energy our volunteers contribute—it’s time that made a significant difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of Canadians who needed blood products this past year.

Volunteers promote important campaigns throughout the year, coordinate and host blood donor clinics and speak to others about the importance of blood, stem cell, organ and tissue donations.

On behalf of our national team at Canadian Blood Services, I’d like to send a heart-felt thanks to all volunteers in Red Deer who support Canadian Blood Services as well as other charitable organizations in Canada.
