Rangers Team up with Canadian Blood Services for Week to Save Lives event February 5-10
Kitchener, ON – Every day, someone is counting on the donations of Canada’s blood and plasma donors. That’s why the Kitchener Rangers are joining Hockey Gives Blood to save lives — and you can help us! We are encouraging our fans and partners to join our Partners for Life team at Canadian Blood Services and book an appointment to donate.
The event will run from February 5th to 10th. However, a few of the Rangers will be making a special appearance on February 6th from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm. These athletes will be on hand to show their support for the cause and encourage the community to join them in making a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
Join us for a chance to play games and win prizes. But most importantly, join us to help save lives and ensure patients in Canada always have the blood products they need, when they need them.
