Bar Chez Maurice invites you to give blood Monday, March 16 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 1897 chemin Sainte-Angélique in Saint-Lazare. The objective of this event is to welcome 195 donors. You will be helping save lives! A thousand blood donations are needed each day to maintain the collective blood supply at an optimal level. Blood can be given every 56 days by a man and every 84 days by a woman. Anyone in good health, aged 18 years or older, can generally donate blood. Before attending a blood drive, you can verify your eligibility by contacting the Donor Services department at 1-800-847-2525 or by visiting www.hema-quebec.qc.ca, under the section Blood > Donors > Who Can Donate?
