We're not just talking about any old Tuesday. On March 26th, 2024, from 1:30 to 7 p.m., head down to the Desjardins Room (banquet room on the 2nd floor) at the Meredith Centre (23, chemin Cecil). It's your chance to roll up your sleeve and be a hero!

Why Should You Donate?

Now, you might be wondering, "Why should I donate blood?" Well, besides the warm fuzzy feeling of knowing you're saving lives, donating blood has tangible benefits for both the donor and the recipient. Plus, you get free snacks! Win-win, right?

Who Can Donate?

Not sure if you're eligible to donate? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Héma-Québec has some pretty strict criteria to ensure the safety of both donors and recipients. Here are just a few points to consider:

  • You must be in good health.
  • You must meet the age requirements (usually between 18 and 70 years old).
  • You must weigh at least 110 lbs (50 kg).
  • Certain medical conditions or recent travels might disqualify you temporarily.

For the full list of eligibility criteria, you can check out Héma-Québec's guidelines. Still not sure? It never hurts to reach out and ask!
