Boots and Badges blood drive honors Springdale first responders


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) – Community Blood Center of the Ozarks partners with Springdale first responders in the Boots and Badges Blood Drive.

The blood drive pits police officers and fire fighters against each other to see which can donate the most blood.

“So basically, we’re encouraging the police and fire department to come out and talk with the community. Let the community talk with them. So it’s just a great feel-good event for all of us because we’re all local providers right here, particularly in Springdale,” Blood drive consultant Andrea Johnson said.

The firefighters won this year’s contest. In total, 40 units of blood were donated.
