It’s that time of year again to donate blood for a great cause.
The blood drive is a friendly competition between the Police, Fire and EMS, however anyone can donate in an agencies name.
Last year York County Sheriff’s Office edged out Piedmont Medical Center EMS and won the 1st annual drive. This drive is to see which agency could donate the most units of blood and be named the real Blood Drive Hero’s. Will you consider donating to save a local life?
The 2nd Annual Badges for Blood Drive Dates are:
Piedmont Medical Center Women’s Tower Auditorium
Tuesday June 25, 2013 - 1:00pm-7:00pm
Wednesday June 26, 2013 - 7am-1pm
Moss Justice Center
Thursday June 27th 2013 - 8:00am to 2:00pm
The goal this year is 60 units of blood.
