The bloodmobile cometh again!

Next week you have a chance to give a little bit of yourself - literally and figuratively - when the Canadian Blood Services' Bloodmobile pulls up at the New Westminster Campus Thursday, February 10, 10am-4pm.

Book your appointments at 1-888-2DONATE - please  do not  email Meg Stainsby, as was done in the past.  Walk-ins will be accommodated wherever possible. The sign-in desk will be on the 4th floor, near the Royal Avenue exit/Studio Theatre, and the Bloodmobile itself will be up on Royal near 7th Avenue.

If you haven't already done so, donors are encouraged to go online to register as a Douglas College member in the Partners for Life "team," so that whenever and wherever you donate, your pints count towards our group total, helping us hit our target of 75 pints a year.

Online registration is easy:  go here and click on the red puzzle piece that says "Member," follow the links and fill in your information. When you are asked for Partner ID, enter DOUG002414 (those are two zeroes, not Os).

This is a one-time registration, separate from booking actual appointments to donate.
