The City of Broussard, the Broussard Fire Department, and Our Lady of Lourdes are hosting a blood drive at Broussard City Hall on June 14th from 3-8pm to benefit Firefighter Alex Bourque, who was recently diagnosed with bone cancer. This blood drive will help offset his medical expenses.

Alex is 25, married with one child, and he and his wife are expecting their second child in a few months. As a firefighter, Alex has gone above and beyond for others, without hesitation, and now it is our turn to help. Those who are not able to make the blood drive on the 14th can donate anytime at Our Lady of Lourdes; they just need to be sure to let them know that they are donating on behalf of Alex Bourque in order for him to receive the credit.
