18th Annual Heroes Behind the Badges

Posted: Updated:

Donate blood in honor of the Sioux Fall Police Department or Sioux Falls Fire Rescue for the  18th Annual Heroes Behind the Badges blood drive.

This challenge started as a way to get donors into the blood bank over the holidays when donations typically fall off. The whole idea is for the Sioux Falls Police and Sioux Falls Fire Rescue to encourage blood donations in the departments and in the community. You can stop by any blood mobile drive or stop by the donor rooms at Sanford and Avera to donate in honor of either the Police or Fire departments. The Sioux Falls Community Blood Bank says they need about 550 units of blood every week to meet the demands here in this area.

Over the years of this contest about 14,000 donations have been given. Right now the Fire Department is in the lead. If you are looking for a spot to donate today just use the link on the left side of your screen.
