Help support Canadian Blood Donor Week!
June 8-14 is National Blood Donor Week all across Canada. The New Brunswick Union, through its Partners for Life Program with Canadian Blood Services is encouraging you to help save a life by donating blood.
Canadian Blood Services is experiencing a notable decrease in donations heading into the summer months. Although donations traditionally dip heading into June, the national inventory is the lowest it has been in more than five years at this time of year.
To book a family or individual blood donor appointment, download the GiveBlood app, visit blood.ca or call 1 888 2 DONATE (1 888-236-6283) today.
We also encourage you to share family donor stories on social media using #families4blood, and rally loved ones to plan a family reunion at a blood donor clinic this summer.

In memory of Moncton's fallen RCMP Officers
The New Brunswick Union has made a donation to the Police and Peace Officers Memorial Ribbon Society in memory of the three fallen RCMP officers following last week's tragic events in Moncton, New Brunswick.
This donation was made on behalf of many of our union members who are enforcement officers and work closely with the RCMP on a daily basis.
Our thoughts are with them, the families of the fallen officers and the community at large.
