Canadian Blood Services holds ‘Bleed and Feed’ event

Two blood donation clinics take place in Abbotsford.

Canadian Blood Services’ (CBS) annual “Bleed and Feed” is back for the third year in a row with the goal of fulfilling 14,000 blood donations in the B.C. and Yukon.

The program, in partnership with Food Banks BC, asks the public to donate non-perishable food items for local food banks.

Donated items will be collected in specially marked “Bleed and Feed” food collection boxes located in the front waiting area of blood donor clinics across the province. Food collected in Abbotsford will stay in the community.

Upcoming clinics in Abbotsford take place at the Pentecostal Assembly gymnasium (3145 Gladwin Rd.) from 1 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11 and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15.
