Disappointing Turnout For Red Cross Event

By  | 

The one-day "Battle of the Badges" blood drive didn't go quite as planned for the Red Cross this year.

In the past, the blood drive ran for two weeks, with donors voting for police of fire departments in a "just for fun" competition. The event was changed to a single day this year. That was Monday, and only 44 units of blood were brought in. That's only a third of their goal.
