Record par­tic­i­pa­tion in Ma­gog Blood Drive

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Ma­gog

In to­tal, 381 donors gave blood dur­ing the City of Ma­gog’s 17th blood drive. The ob­jec­tive of three hun­dred donors was eas­ily passed thanks to a large num­ber of young and first time donors. “Cer­tainly the nice weather played a role in the gen­eral in­crease in donors, but it also seems like the stu­dents from the Cen­tre de for­ma­tion pro­fes­sion­nelle Mem­phré­m­a­gog got the word to ei­ther give blood or vol­un­teer, which in­creased the par­tic­i­pa­tion rate, es­pe­cially among the young. It is great news be­cause we count a lot on this next gen­er­a­tion to fill the needs that never stop grow­ing,” com­mented Ma­gog mayor Vicki May Hamm. The mayor and the city’s coun­cil mem­bers are very proud that so many Ma­gog peo­ple re­sponded to the in­vi­ta­tion to give blood, prov­ing once more their great gen­eros­ity.
