Mayor Eric Westram and the members of Rosemère’s Town Council invite residents to attend an upcoming Héma-Québec blood donor clinic on September 19 through 21, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and September 22, between 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., at Place Rosemère (640 Court, Door 4), located at 401 Labelle Boulevard. The target turnout for the drive is 60 donors per day.
“It takes about 1,000 blood donations every day to ensure Quebec’s blood supply remains at optimal levels. This is contingent on everyday citizens just like you giving blood on a regular basis,” said Mayor Westram. “It’s a simple way of making a difference that can save thousands of lives. So, let’s all roll up our sleeves and give generously between September 19 and 22.”
To avoid waiting in line, you can make an appointment in advance by writing to email@example.com or calling 1-800-343-7264.
