Twenty-nine people participated in the Alhambra Police Department blood drive, with the department collecting 25 successful donations last Thursday.

Several law enforcement, county workers, and residents gathered in the small room at the Alhambra Police Department to donate blood to replenish American Red Cross inventory. They believed deeply in donating for a good cause, like Marina Wingenbach, of the City of Alhambra’s Finance Department. “I’m donating because I can, I take care of myself and it’s important to save lives,” she said.

The Battle of the Badge blood drive began in 2007 as a chance for law enforcement to help needy patients through a friendly competition. “I felt honored to be chosen to host and organize this event for department,” said Nicole Haywood-James, the Police Department’s administrative finance manager. “I feel this is such an important and worthy cause with everything going on in the world and [now] we are able to assist American Red Cross.” She added that one blood donation can save up to three lives.

The Battle of the Badges will take place around the United States for the next few months. If you are interested in donating blood, please visit the Red Cross website.

The Red Cross is also running its own blood drive in Alhambra starting Feb. 16, because of shortages from canceled blood drives in locations experiencing severe winter weather. For more information, visit this link.
