The Philippine Festival Association of Alberta/Fiesta Filipino YYC (one of the largest Filipino organizations in Alberta) partnered with Canadian Blood Services in Calgary in celebration of Philippine Heritage month in June. This is the first year the organization has partnered with Canadian Blood Services, and the blood drive was one of the many events of Fiesta Filipino for the month of June.

The board of directors and members encouraged the Filipino community in Calgary to roll up their sleeves and support the ”Dugong Bayani” (Blood of a Hero) Blood Drive. A group of 20 donors came to the blood donor center at Eau Claire in Calgary on June 27 to contribute to Canada’s Lifeline. Thank you Fiesta Filipino YYC!
