Javelin’s Giving Back Initiative – Oakville Blood Drive

Story by Karen Majerly on May 21, 2019

Half of all Canadians will either need blood or know someone who needs it. From accident victims, to cancer patients, to transplant recipients, a blood transfusion can be a lifesaver.

The need for blood donations is constant; donating is something you can do today to help someone else wake up healthy tomorrow. As part of Javelin’s Giving Back initiative, the volunteer committee organized a blood donation event for Oakville employees on April 26, 2019. It was a first for Javelin, and some first-time donors turned up! They might have come out for the promise of a cookie but all said they would donate again in the future. Regular donors were supportive, and all involved hope to encourage others to try donating, perhaps at other Javelin-Cimetrix locations across Canada.

These smiling faces tell the story! Thank you to those who helped set up the event and those who gave blood.
