Inaugural Badge for Life blood event success
BONIFAY - Holmes County Sheriff's Office is marking the inaugural Badge for Life blood drive recently held in the county a rousing success.
The local law enforcement agency said the event collected 37 units, and of those 37 units, 8 units were Convalescent Plasma Units. HCSO said that considering OneBlood has had to reduce the number of people allowed on their donation bus out of Covid-19 precautions, that was an amazing number of units for a six-hour time span.
"We are so thankful by the response we received from our caring and giving community," HCSO Public Information Officer Carol Wyatt said.
