Mayor Hart, right, with Canadian Blood Services' Staff Nurse Violet O'Donnell, is promoting the Dec. 9 East St. Paul Blood Donor Clinic and trying to get at least 60 people out to give blood. Hart has "adopted" the clinic, and has been a blood donor herself since 1989. The clinic runs from 3-6 pm at the Rec Complex.
Mayor Shelley Hart is encouraging all East St. Paul residents to give the best gift this holiday season – the gift of life.
A Canadian Blood Services Blood Donor Clinic will be held at the East St. Paul Recreation Complex this Friday, Dec. 9, and Mayor Hart has committed to getting 60 people out to give blood by adopting the clinic.
It’s a cause the retired Winnipeg Police Deputy Chief is passionate about – as a police officer she was the police ‘champion’ for the Sirens for Life blood challenge, held annually.
"I have been a blood donor since 1989 and have encouraged family, friends and co-workers to give this gift of life,” Hart said.
According to the Canadian Blood Services, 100,000 new donors are needed across Canada this year. By adopting a clinic, and bringing in 60 donors from East St. Paul, Mayor Hart is pleased to do her part to help achieve that goal.
"This time of year is the perfect season for giving a gift that money cannot buy.”
The Dec. 9 Blood Donor Clinic runs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Recreation Complex at 260 Hoddinott Road. If you’d like to register, visit www.blood.ca to book your appointment.
