Congregation Shaare Zion Men's Club (5575 Côte St. Luc Road, near Marcil) will be hosting a Hema Quebec Blood Drive (10 a.m.) and a Community Information Day (1 p.m.) with 20 well known leading agencies and organizations from Montreal on .
Organizers Farley Fishman, Norm Spatz and Neil Bernstein note that the Congregation and the community at large will benefit from this one stop gathering for information and answers to different questions. "Just think if you needed to go to one of these offices," notes Fishman. "You would have to commute to the location, find and pay for parking or take the bus, get there in time if you had an appointment or wait a while till you were seen. In this case it will all be in one place."
Both the Blood Drive and Community Information Day will be held downstairs in the reception rooms.
