Dear Community Members,The Lebanese Canadian Society of BC is proud to announce that it has signed on as a “Partners for Life” organization with Canadian Blood Services.
Every minute of every day someone in Canada will need blood or blood products. And while roughly 1 out of every 2 people are eligible to give blood, only about 1 out of 60 actually do.
Organizations who participate in the Partners for Life program pledge to donate a certain number of units of blood each year.
The LCS of BC will be having its very first blood donation event in Surrey on the afternoon of Friday, January 3rd, 2014, for the Board of Directors and first 2 people that register online at lcsbc.ca/cbs. The LCS of BC will keep you posted about upcoming blood donation in each city of BC therefore you can have the chance to donate in the coming months.
As a “Partners for Life” organization, the LCS of BC has pledged to donate at least 15 units of blood in 2014.
All members – as well as their friends and family members – are welcome to join the team by registering online at lcsbc.ca/cbs. By registering just once, you will receive a confirmation email with all details from the Canadian Blood Services, afterwards all future donations will be automatically added to the LCS of BC’s group total.
