Come and donate blood in Pierrefonds-Roxboro, along with family, colleagues and friends. It only takes an hour for this act of kindness towards someone waiting for a transfusion or blood product. Just one hour of your time is life-changing.

The Borough of Pierrefonds-Roxboro invites you to Héma-Québec’s blood drive, which will be held under the honorary chairmanship of Mayor Dimitrios (Jim) Beis.

The event takes place on Wednesday, November 16, from 1:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Pierrefonds Cultural Centre located at 13850 Gouin Boulevard West in Pierrefonds.

Appointment required

It is necessary to make an appointment before coming by calling 1 800 343-7264 (SANG), by writing to [email protected] or by visiting the website.

Reserving a time slot makes it easier for the event to run smoothly.

One thousand blood donations per day

Did you know that 1,000 blood donations are needed every day to ensure an optimal reserve level? In July 2022, when the blood reserve was low, people from all regions of Québec pulled together and answered Héma-Québec’s call.

As a result, the blood reserve is now doing well. However, blood is a perishable commodity and it is important to keep our reserve afloat. In order to pursue its mission and ensure that we all benefit from a sufficient supply of blood, Héma-Québec counts on the generosity of thousands of donors.

Who can give blood?

Anyone in good health, over the age of 18, can generally donate blood. Before coming to a blood drive, please check your eligibility to donate by calling 1-800-847-2525 or visit Héma-Québec’s Website.

We look forward to your participation. Come one, come all!
