Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

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.
