Congregation Shaare Zion set for Blood Drive and Community Day April 6

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 Sunday, April 6.

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.

Here are  the organizations: 

Jewish Genealogy Society of Montreal
Jewish Public Library 
Jewish Community Foundation of Montreal 
Communicaid for Hearing Impaired Persons
Mada Community Center 
Sun Youth Organization 

B'nai Brith Canada 
 Auberge Shalom 
 Act To End Violence Against Women 
 Project Genesis
 Cummings Centre 
 Hope & Cope 
 Heart & Stroke Foundation
 Diabetes Quebec
 CSSS Cavendish
 Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada
  Alzheimer Group INC (AGI)
  Physio 360

  1. Thank you Mike for getting our message out to the community. We want to ensure that everyone knows the services available to them in our area. As well, the blood drive is an opportunity for people in the West End to do their bit to make sure that the health of everyone is not compromised by a shortage of blood.
