The IETA is proud to share our support once again at a “Blood Drive” donation event on Monday January 13th, from 4:15 to 6pm at the Canadian Blood Services Clinic, 163 King Street West (South West corner of King and University)

Did you know that half of all Canadians will either need blood or know someone who needs it? The need is constant. This is something we can do today to ensure that someone else wakes up healthy tomorrow.
