Héma-Québec invites Laval residents to the blood collection to be held on Monday, Oct. 17, between 2:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Montrougeau Community Centre, located at 25, Montrougeau, in Fabreville.
The goal of that event is to get 50 donors.
Let’s recall that booking an appointment before coming to the collection is always recommended in order to respect the time factor. People can do so online, on the Héma-Québec Website, or by phone, at 1 800 343-7264.
A thousand blood donations per day are necessary to guarantee an optimal level of reserve.
Last July, when the blood supply was low, people from all regions of Quebec responded to Héma-Québec’s call. Thanks to this solidarity movement, the current reserve is doing well.
However, since blood is perishable, the organization relies on the generosity of thousands of people in order to keep its reserve optimal. (J.B./IJL)
