Police win Battle for Blood!

For the second year in a row, Police came from behind to claim victory in the annual Battle for Blood drive for Community Blood Center. Metro-area Police registered 729 blood donors to Fire's 602. Police had lagged behind all week but made up a lot of ground on Friday, June 26. The real winners, of course, are the people in the Kansas City area who need life-giving blood transfusions.

The Battle for Blood may be over, but the Community Blood Center still needs blood donations. This year's drive brought in 450 fewer registered blood donors than last year, and summer is a time of critical need for the Community Blood Center. So if you haven't already, please donate, and you could save a life! If you did donate, you're eligible to donate again in as little as eight weeks.
