Sabeel Blood Drive

Feb 19, 2023

Sabeel Youth Community Center, a local community organization, has partnered with Islamic Relief Canada to organize a blood drive in an effort to increase the blood supply and save lives. The blood drive took place on Saturday, February 18th, from 9 am to 3 pm and there will be additional slots for Monday February 20th for those who couldn’t make it for Saturday. To check for the available spots, check out our volunteering page to register for future drives.

The Sabeel Youth Community Center, which is committed to making a positive impact in the community, believes that organizing a blood drive is a great way to help people in need. According to the Canadian Blood Services, someone in Canada requires blood every 60 seconds. With this in mind, the Sabeel Muslim Youth & Community Center and Islamic Relief Canada are urging people to donate blood and make a difference in someone’s life.

“We are excited to partner with Islamic Relief Canada to host this blood drive,” said Ammar Shakoor, a volunteer at Sabeel Muslim Youth & Community Center. “We believe that donating blood is a simple but powerful way to help people in need, and we are proud to be able to make a difference in our community.”

Islamic Relief Canada, a humanitarian organization that provides aid and assistance to people in need, has also expressed their excitement about the blood drive. “We are thrilled to be partnering with the Sabeel Youth Community Center to organize this blood drive and encourage everyone to come out and donate blood.” said Aisha Gattous, a representative of Islamic Relief Canada.

Those who are interested in donating blood can sign up online at the Canadian Blood Services website or walk-in on the day of the blood drive.

Overall, the Sabeel Youth Community Center and Islamic Relief Canada hope that the blood drive will be a success and encourage everyone to come out and donate blood to help save lives.
