STOP 1 / Donate Blood
Take 30 minutes and give blood at Canadian Blood Services via the Edmonton Donor Clinic (8249 114 Street).
You can book a time slot to suit your schedule.
Once you show up:
• You'll get signed in (there's a little bit of paperwork during your first visit)
• They test your blood with a pin prick to one of your fingers to make sure you can donate
• A nurse will get you get set-up on a comfy lounger
• They'll talk you through the process
The blood donation itself will take about 10 minutes
The standard donation is around 450 mL (roughly two cups). This is only a small amount of blood in a person’s body.
The average adult has approx. 5 litres
After your donation is done, you get COOKIES while you rest for 10+ minutes
