Municipality of Cantley | It’s summer, we need arms: Come and donate blood!

Published on August 11, 2022

This summer, make an essential gesture and give meaning to life: donate blood. Hundreds of people thus need a donation to recover their health. To make it easier for you, a collection is organized near you. All you have to do is make an appointment! Who knows ? You might even make a habit of it!

LIEU : Multifunctional Community Center
ADDRESS : 6, Impasse des Etoiles, Cantley
DATE : Wednesday, August 31, 2022, between 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
OBJECTIVE : Convince 70 donors to roll up their sleeves for a small blood donation.

In order to avoid queues and to respect your busy schedules, we 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. Make an appointment online at jedonne.hema-quebec.qc.ca/ or call 1 800 343-7264 (SANG).

It’s summer, roll up your sleeves!

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. It’s so easy! If you fear the needle, know that the people on site are qualified to supervise this experience. They will know how to reassure you and you will be so proud to have given!

Want to check if you can donate?

Before going to a blood drive, you can always check your eligibility with Donor Customer Service at 1 800 847-2525 or consult the Héma-Québec website at www.hema-quebec.qc.casection Donors > Blood > Can I donate?
