Suc­cess­ful Blood Drive for Stanstead Fire­fight­ers

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Or­ga­niz­ers of last Thurs­day’s blood donor clinic in Stanstead, the Stanstead Vol­un­teer Fire­fight­ers, were very happy that they sur­passed their goal of eighty donors. “It was very en­cour­ag­ing for our blood drive. We got eighty-eight people with­out hav­ing to beg any­body,” said fire cap­tain Jean Fluet.

Hema-Quebc was also very happy with the re­sults. “I’ve ex­pressed con­cerns to Hema-Que­bec about the num­ber of donors we get and they said that eighty-eight donors was very worth­while for them. We’ve seen an in­crease in the num­ber of donors this year and we hope to get even more next year,” con­cluded Mr. Fluet.
