Association of Blood Donation Volunteers
Vital support for the Association of Blood Donation Volunteers (ABDV)
In 2013–2014, the Foundation continued to support the volunteers of the ABDV with a contribution of $125,000 to reinforce and promote the essential role they play in the blood collection process. Day after day, at each and every blood drive, ABDV volunteers are there, recruiting, greeting and even comforting blood donors. In 2013-2014, there was 230 blood drive and 40 ABO booths. ABO booths are used to determine visitor’s blood types in just à few seconds.
That is why the Foundation will continue to support the activities of the ABDV, most notably through the memorial giving program, available in most funeral homes in Quebec.
