Easter weekend is just around the corner and Canadian Blood Services is concerned about turn-out at a pair of clinics in the Foothills.

There's one in High River on Saturday, April 23rd at the Heritage Inn from 9am-2pm and one in Okotoks on Monday the 25th at the Foothills Centennial Centre from 3-7pm.

Spokesperson Conor Tapp is strongly encouraging people to make time to come out.

Tapp says the goal is to collect a total of 200 donations between the two clinics, meaning Canadian Blood Services will be able to help about 600 Albertans.
