You can go on your own or be picked up by bus. Bus pick up requires 10 participants and will be available at the following locations:

Monday September 17, 2007 @ 10:00 – Van City
Tuesday September 18, 2007 @ 10:00 – Britannia Community Centre

Please call strike headquarters 604-607-5204 two days prior to your blood donor day to advise of bus pick up needs. Or get a group together and go on your own.

Donations take about 2 hours from the time of pick up to drop off. You will be required to bring photo ID. Eat two hours prior to your donation, avoid coffee and drink lots of water before hand.

Time taken donating blood counts as picket-time! Don’t forget to sign in as a CUPE member when you arrive. Bring friends and family too!
