Join Team McLeish Orlando
In 2021, McLeish Orlando Lawyers formally partnered with Canadian Blood Services to encourage blood donations. Since then, we have been busy finding new ways to increase blood donations. We implemented an internal policy encouraging staff to take time off work to donate, and we participated (and won!) the 2022 Summer Law Challenge and created a team to unite and motivate continued donations.
The relationship between McLeish Orlando Lawyers and Canadian Blood Services extends back over a decade. Giving back to the community is deeply rooted in the firm’s culture, and so is their commitment to donating blood. “A good portion of our practice is dedicated to helping those who have been seriously injured in a car crash, many of them requiring blood. It is important for us to remember and to make a point to donate” says Dale Orlando.
We encourage everyone who is eligible to join our team and make an appointment to donate. You already know you are impacting a patient’s life every time you donate. Just imagine the impact your entire team can make if you pledge to donate together! Grab your family and friends and have them join our team too – the MOre the merrier!

MEMBER SELF-BOOKING PORTAL
The portal allows you to reserve a group of appointments for your team and invite them to sign up for any of the available slots.
The biggest bonus: As a member of the team, when you reserve your appointment, you will have access to your donor questionnaire ahead of time (to save time in the donor centre), even if you are coming as part of a group reservation!
*Please note: A donor must be in good general health and at least 17 years old. On the day of your donation, you must have had enough food and sleep and should be very hydrated. The need for blood is constant and every donation counts.
