Atlantic Canadian makes 1000th Blood Donation
A huge milestone for one Atlantic Canadian man who hit 1000 earlier this week!
Allen Veale of Stratford, PEI, paid a visit to his local Canadian Blood Services on Tuesday. Veale went in to to donate blood, and it was a big occasion…his 1,000th donation! Veale is only the second Islander to reach this milestone.
Veale is among several hundred Canadians (and many here in the Moncton region) that give blood regularly to help stock the country’s blood supply.
The need is great, even during these unprecedented times, and to that end, there is a blood donation event happening this coming holiday Monday, Aug 3. You can book an appointment between 2p.m. and 8p.m. There are 35 appointments to fill, and you can book by visiting their website or the Give Blood App.
