On Tuesday, January 8th Canadian Hemophilia Society, Manitoba Chapter (CHS-MC) sponsored a blood drive with Canadian Blood Services (CBS). Thanks to everyone who rolled up their sleeves to donate on behalf of the Chapter.

It was a great day! Our Chapter is a partner with the Partners for Life program with Canadian Blood Services. This means that as a group we work together to help contribute to Canada’s blood supply. On January 8th, we not only had the opportunity to contribute to the much needed blood supply but we also had the opportunity to say thanks to donors for their generous and much needed and life saving contribution.

“Individuals told me the were there to support chapter members and when I thanked donors for there support, they seemed pleased.” – Bruce
