The 37th annual Canadiens-evenko Blood Drive will be held on Thursday, November 29 at the Bell Centre
On Thursday, November 29, 2018, the Bell Centre will host the 37th annual Canadiens-evenko Blood Drive, presented in collaboration with RDS and in support of Héma-Québec.
From 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., donors can help Héma-Québec collect much-needed units of blood. Throughout the day, members of the Canadiens organization, Montreal Canadiens Alumni, as well as evenko and RDS celebrities will be on hand to meet the donors and thank them for their generosity. Sun Life Financial will also be on location to provide awareness and prevention information on diabetes.
The Canadiens’ Blood Drive was initiated by Jean Béliveau and Claude Mouton in 1981. Since 1998, the Montreal Canadiens organize their blood drive in collaboration with Héma-Québec, an organization whose vision is to become a strategic partner for the Quebec health system. According to Héma-Québec, the Canadiens’ Blood Drive is of the utmost importance. It represents over three quarters of the daily blood supply in Quebec. Over the past 35 years, the Montreal Canadiens’ Blood Drive has helped save over 100,000 lives.

According to NHL security policies, no backpacks or bags larger than a briefcase will be allowed inside the Bell Centre and no item can be left at the consignment. Furthermore, anyone who undergoes a body search upon entering the Bell Centre will not be permitted to leave and re-enter the building.
