Blood Drive at Alexander Galt today
TheLVTC and Alexander Galt Regional High School Students invite you to the blood drive, under the honorary chairmanship of Marc-André Skelling, to be held on Wednesday, April 6, 2016, from 2:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at Lennoxville Vocational Training Centre (cafeteria – Alexander Galt High School), located at 1700 College Street, Sherbrooke. The members of the Héma- Québec team hope to welcome 200 donors.
In Québec, someone needs blood every 80 seconds. Every day, Héma-Québec must collect at least 1,000 blood donations to meet all the needs of Québec hospitals. The collective blood supply belongs to all. Regardless of where the blood is collected, it is processed and tested, and then sent wherever the needs are, wherever it is necessary to contribute to saving lives.
A blood donation takes an average of 60 minutes and you can donate whole blood every 56 days. Make an appointment at one of our four GLOBULE Blood Donor Centres or check for upcoming mobile blood drives on our website: http://www.hema-quebec.qc.ca. Who can donate? Any healthy person aged 18 and over can generally donate blood. Héma-Québec makes donor and recipient safety its utmost priority and establishes strict qualification criteria that are reviewed and assessed on a regular basis. Consult our website to learn more about these criteria.
Before coming to a blood donor clinic, you can check if you are eligible to donate with the Donor Customer Service at 1-800-343-7264. You can also go to the BLOOD (Who Can Donate Blood?) section of Héma-Québec’s website to become better informed.
