This summer, Héma-Québec wants to remind people that the need for blood donors never takes a vacation. Every day, the organization needs at least 1,000 blood donations to maintain its stocks.
In order to fulfill this constant need, the Brownsburg-Chatham Fire Safety Services, in collaboration with Orica Canada and community volunteers, will be holding a blood drive in memory of Jérémie Paradis on Tuesday, August 15, from 1:30 to 7:30 at the Fire Hall (302, Hôtel-de-Ville St. in Brownsburg-Chatham).
Every 80 seconds, someone in Quebec is in need of blood. Wherever the blood is collected from, it is processed and tested before being shipped to wherever the need is greatest to save lives.
Who can donate?
Any person over 18 in good health can generally give blood. However, there are certain exceptions; visit www.hema-quebec.qc.ca to verify your eligibility.
