The Chisago County Sheriff’s Office is sponsoring a blood drive in a friendly competition “Battle of the Badges” with other law enforcement agencies in the metro area.
A plaque goes to the agency that recruits the most blood donors in the month of August. Of course the real goal of this competition is to increase the amount of blood donated that saves many lives.
The sheriff’s office has set aside Aug. 28 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. North Memorial will be set up in the Chisago Lakes Lutheran Church in Center City to take your donation.
Register at www.mbc.org/searchdrives and enter sponsor code 3993. Or e-mail Mary McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will help you get set up.
The sheriff’s office is hoping for a great response and to add more spots to its online registration. Each donor will receive a free commemorative pint glass for donating.
