The annual battle of the badges blood drive was another HUGE success!
We’d like to officially congratulate the Huntersville Police Department with the win today at the annual #BattleOfTheBadges at Birkdale Village. Strong work HPD – it was nice to hang with you all day & to have your Chief out donating as well! HPD will be donating their $1,000 winnings to Warrior Jace!
Despite the decreased foot traffic due to the cold, rainy & sleety weather (yes it sleeted on us and our PIO got some serious wind burn) we had a total of 74 blood donors. Our goal was 60 donors and we are fortunate and thankful to beat our goal….again! We serve such an amazing, caring community. With these blood donations we could potentially help over 186 people in need at LOCAL hospitals. The donation breakdown is as follows: HPD 31, HFD 26, MCSO 17. #OneTownOneTeam #HuntersvillePD#HPDonDuty #MCSO #WarriorJace
Big thank you to Birkdale Village & all of the tenants for the support, venue, prize money & all the hard work organizing the event; Panera Bread for the coffee & bagels (saved the morning!); HPD volunteers for running the kid ID station, Jimmy John’s for lunch and Charlotte HERO Patrol Roadside Assistance for the help, labor, good conversation and the tent for the face painter.
