Sher­brooke Blood Drive

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The City of Sher­brooke is hold­ing its an­nual blood drive to­mor­row, Thurs­day, Jan­uary 31st, and on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 1st, at the Car­refour de l’Estrie, on Port­land Boule­vard. Or­ga­niz­ers are hop­ing to re­ceive at least 490 blood donors be­tween 10:00 am and 8:00 pm. To give blood one must be 18 years old or older and must re­spond to other ad­mis­si­bil­ity cri­te­ria. Any­one who would like to give blood but isn’t sure if they are ad­mis­si­ble can ei­ther call Hema-Que­bec at 1 800 847-2525 or con­sult the Hema-Que­bec web­site at www.hema-que­bec.qc.ca, sec­tion “Don de sang”.

Peo­ple are re­minded that there is no risk of con­tract­ing an ill­ness by giv­ing blood be­cause all the equip­ment used is new, ster­il­ized, and de­stroyed once it is used.
