NBU has recently partnered 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 this year.  Anyone who gives blood can put his or her unit of blood towards NB Union’s pledge, even if you are a regular blood donor, haven't donated in a while or have never donated blood.

If you are interested in donating blood in New Brunswick Union’s name, you can fill out the registration form before your next blood donation or register in person during your next visit. You will need the Partner ID to make sure the donation goes towards New Brunswick Union NEWB013694.

“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”.

Canadian Blood Services is proud to work with hundreds of corporations and community organizations nationwide each year in support of their "Partners for Life" program. As members of this lifesaving program, companies, government agencies, community groups, schools, service clubs, faith organizations and many others demonstrate their commitment to saving lives through donating blood, platelets and plasma.

If you have made a blood donation since January 1st, 2013, the pledge can be retroactive. Simply contact Canadian Blood Service with the Partner ID above.

Help us make our communities stronger and healthier!
