Fredericton (02 June 2014) — In 2013 the New Brunswick Union (NBU/NUPGE) partnered with Canadian Blood Services in their Partners for Life program. As part of this program, the New Brunswick Union has pledged to donate 25 units of blood a year. Anyone who gives blood can put his or her unit of blood towards NB Union’s pledge.
NBU/NUPGE gives back to the community by pledging 25 units of blood per year
In May 2014, NBU’s Board of Directors visited the Canadian Blood Services provincial centre in Saint John. During the tour, some of the Board members took the opportunity to donate blood. For some of them it was the first time, proving that it’s never too late to donate!
“Helping our communities doesn’t stop with our members. Every day, thousands of people are in need of blood, we can all play our part,” said NB Union President Susie Proulx-Daigle. “Together, we can make a difference by simply donating blood in NB Union’s name.”
