Canadian Blood Services and HRFE host In Honour donation event for Kyle Currie, March 18 – 22
WHAT: Remembering Kyle Currie, a Halifax Regional Municipality firefighter who passed away Oct. 2, 2018 at the age of 34. Eligible blood donors are encouraged to donate in his honour from March 18th to the 22nd and show support by sharing their donation experience on social media using the hashtag #GiveForKyle. Kyle’s family and friends will be joined by Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency to donate blood in his honour on March 19th and 20th (Kyle’s birthday).
Kyle donated his time to many charities including the Parker Street Food Bank, International Save a Child, and he handed money to the less fortunate. Kyle was adventurous, funny, kind and a highly-skilled athlete. His prankster side very often showed up at work and he was famous at HRFE for doing character impersonations. Kyle was a very generous spirit and he would love to know that people are rolling up their sleeves to donate in his memory.
On behalf of Kyle, please donate the gift of life and help support someone else’s fight.
