It's time for Swift Current residents to step up to the plate and donate.


The final day of the blood donor clinic at the Trailview Alliance Church runs today until 4:00pm.


Stan Lautsch is the Local Area Co-ordinator for Canadian Blood Services, and says that although turnouts are always good here in Swift Current, they have yet to meet their expectations.


He says they have never reached their donor capacity, a trend they are looking to end with this clinic.


Lautsch also says that with people on vacation, donations are down around the province, resulting in a higher demand for blood.
