Battle of the Badges Blood Drive 2015

Blood Drive Logo

It is that time of year, when the Oelwein police officers and the Oelwein firemen put down their gear and roll-up their sleeves to donate blood.

Last year, the Oelwein firemen took home the trophy when they had 37 people donate on their behalf while the Oelwein police had 21.

Both departments would like to invite you to come donate blood on Friday, May 15th, 2015 from 1PM to 6PM at the Oelwein Community Plaza, 25 W Charles Street.

Appointments are preferred by calling to set-up an appointment at 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767), however walk-ins are welcome.
