Canadian Blood Services needs you


Did you know that RRU is a partner with Canadian Blood Services?  That means that RRU has made a commitment to:

  • promote the blood donor clinics
  • encourage our staff to become local heroes by giving the gift of life through blood donation
  • to set new goals each year so that we can help more and more people

Last year, Canadian Blood Services were very thankful to RRU for the 59 units of blood that were donated in 2013. Each visit = one unit of blood. Our 2014 goal is 100 units of blood. We might be closer than we think because we are not sure if all RRU donations are being counted!

Already a donor?

If you are already a donor, please ensure that your donations are counted in our RRU Partnership statistics by emailing who will have someone from the Canadian Blood Services email you for your information. They will add you to our member list. Please be assured that your information remains private. Canadian Blood Services only reports the number of units not the names of the donors.

 And please consider bringing a friend with you the next time you go. The more the merrier!

Consider donating

Always thought you would live to become a donor, but something is holding you back? Nervous to go alone? Don’t be! Grab a friend and use the buddy system or call Cecelia David (ext. 2536) or Jeannie Drew (ext. 4385) and we will go with you.
