Masonic Blood Donors
Masons are responsible for approximately 35,000 Blood Donations a year in Ontario. Masons have been involved with blood donor organizations since the First World War. In 1958, at the 103 rd annual communication of grand lodge, M.W.Bro.Harry L. Martyn formed a special committee called “The Blood Donor Committee”. Masons have been assisting ever since.

Recipients are not required to have any Masonic connection, and there is no restriction as to race, religion, colour, or sex. “For the cause of good”.
