Going into the long weekend, Maple Ridge Alliance Church hosted a blood donation event in partnership with Canadian Blood Services.
This community event ran from during Friday afternoon (Sept. 2) and is part of an ongoing service offered by Canadian Blood Services where they set up a blood donation station inside of the church every second Friday.
With an average of one person dying and 440 people getting injured in the Lower Mainland every Labour Day long weekend, according to ICBC, BC blood banks are especially in need of donations around this time of year.
