Blood Drive: Wednesday, August 21

The Town of Hampstead is pleased to host its 13th annual blood drive in collaboration with Héma-Québec. This event will take place:

Date: Wednesday, August 21
Time: 1:30 pm to 8:00 pm
Place:  Irving L. Adessky Community Centre

The blood donor clinic has been organized by Town Councillor, Michael Goldwax, and chaired by his son, Brandon Baran-Goldwax, for the last 13 years. The organizing committee hopes to collect 130 units at this year’s event.

Any healthy person aged 18 years or older who meets Héma-Québec eligibility criteria can give blood as frequently as every 56 days, i.e., six times a year. Donors are encouraged to eat and be well hydrated before going to the drive.  A whole blood donation takes about 10 minutes. The entire process takes about an hour.

To determine whether or not you are eligible to give blood, call 1-800-847-2525 or visit the “Blood/Who can Donate Blood” section of the Héma-Québec website.
