Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and City of Springfield employees participated in the Second Annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive with the American Red Cross today at City Hall. Once again, Mayor Sarno kicked off the drive this morning by giving a blood donation. Each donor had the chance to vote for the Police or Fire Department upon their sign in. The winning department will be revealed in the near future and will receive the Battle of the Badges trophy.
Mayor Domenic J. Sarno stated, “I would like to thank all those who continue to donate blood and raise awareness to bring out new blood donors in support of all our public safety officials. Be part of the team that helps save lives on and off the job. Please remember, hospital patients still depend on volunteer donors to receive life-saving transfusions.”
