This summer, Héma-Québec invites North Shore citizens to take an essential step and give meaning to life by donating blood. Hundreds of people need a donation to recover their health. To make it easier for donors, a collection is organized in Sainte-Thérèse, under the honorary presidency of Mrs. Claudia Tremblay-Cadieux. Héma-Québec is hoping locals will make an appointment and perhaps even make a habit of it
The location is the Thérèse-De-Blainville Intermunicipal Police Authority at 150, boul. Ducharme in Sainte-Thérèse. The blood collection will take place on Monday, August 29, 2022, between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. The objective is to convince 115 donors to roll up their sleeves for a small blood donation.

In order to avoid queues and to respect everyone’s busy schedules, Héma-Québec have set up an appointment system. This way of doing things, born out of the pandemic, has been tested and makes the blood donation experience even easier for everyone. Donors can make an appointment online at jedonne.hema-quebec.qc.ca/ or call 1 800 343-7264 (SANG).
Because blood is perishable and cannot be stored for long, some 1,000 blood donations are needed every day to ensure an optimal level of reserve. To do this, Héma-Québec is counting on the generosity of Quebecers to roll up their sleeves during the summer.
Before going to a blood drive, donors can always check their eligibility with Donor Customer Service at 1 800 847-2525 or consult the Héma-Québec website at www.hema-quebec.qc. ca, section Donors > Blood > Can I donate?
