Do you want to make a difference? Give blood! Donating blood is an act of solidarity that costs nothing, takes only a few minutes of your time and helps save lives.
The Montreal West Scout Group invites you to a blood drive that will take place on Wednesday, October 26th, from 1:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the St-Philip’s Anglican Church, located at 7505 Sherbrooke West Street in Montréal. The members of the Héma-Québec team hope to welcome 90 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.
