Community Blood Drive
On September 10th, 2022 Deepak Anand, MPP for Mississauga Malton hosted a blood drive to support Canadian Blood Services. Half of all Canadians will either need blood or knows someone who will need blood, yet only four percent of Canadians donate. Approximately $562 million is spent on collecting blood for patients in critical care. The blood drive took place at the Heartland Town Centre branch of Canadian Blood Services from 12:00 pm onwards. Healthy refreshments and water were provided to the donors to ensure all those who participate felt healthy and energized upon leaving. MPP Anand has been a longstanding advocate for encouraging everyone in donating blood to help vulnerable patients in need. Thank you to the incredible blood donors and the hardworking nurses and staff for making donating blood an easy and safe process. Let’s do our part and #beadonor
Donating blood is truly an altruistic gift one individual can directly give to individuals who are in dire need.
