The “Battle of the Badges” Blood Drive was a huge success, collecting over 20,000 units during the campaign, with more than 20 agencies officially participating and an additional 74 agencies represented by donors voting for them. We received over 800 ballots from donors who came in to give blood on behalf of their favorite agency.
For every unit of blood collected through this campaign, up to to three people may have been helped. Blood is often used to help accident victims, cancer patients, premature babies, burn patients, or our friends and family who may need regular blood transfusions in order to live.
We will be launching a “City Challenge” this summer, and will look forward to a bigger 2014 “Battle of the Badges” Blood Drive next January!
