Dor­val’s Blood Drive on October 24

Montreal Times - - News -

Again this year, the City of Dor­val is or­ga­niz­ing, in co­op­er­a­tion with Héma-Québec, its blood drive, which will take place on October 24, 2017, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Sarto-Des­noy­ers Com­mu­nity Cen­tre (1335 Lakeshore Drive).

In or­der to help main­tain Que­bec’s col­lec­tive blood re­serve at a suf­fi­cient level, Dor­val res­i­dents and the pub­lic at large are in­vited to come in large num­bers to give blood dur­ing the event.

Any healthy per­son, 18 years or older, who sat­is­fies the el­i­gi­bil­ity cri­te­ria can con­trib­ute to the col­lec­tive re­serve by giv­ing blood. To ver­ify your ad­mis­si­bil­ity for a blood do­na­tion, please dial 1800-847-2525 or visit www.hemaque­bec.qc.ca.

Did you know that to meet the needs of the pop­u­la­tion of Que­bec, Héma-Québec must col­lect 1,000 do­na­tions per day and that blood is an ir­re­place­able re­source? In fact, ev­ery 80 sec­onds, some­one in Que­bec needs blood. As a re­sult, main­tain­ing the col­lec­tive blood sup­ply de­pends on the gen­eros­ity of those who feel com­pelled to share in the wealth of their health.
