2nd Annual Boots vs. Badges Blood Drive

Wednesday, July 24, 2019

Everyday Police Officers, Firefighters and other emergency personnel respond to the call and help those in need. Now it’s your chance to “Respond to the Call” and help make a difference in our community! How? By donating blood at our American Red Cross Boots vs. Badges blood drive on Wednesday, July 24TH from 7:00 AM - 7:00 PM at 2020 Valleydale Road (Public Safety Center – 2nd floor Large Training Room).

The “Battle of the Badges” is a friendly competition among first responders to see who can recruit the most blood donors from their communities. 

Accept the challenge and join us to help save lives.  These friendly “battles” will be going on all over the country, and your Hoover Fire & Police Departments want to be among the top vote getters!  Last year Hoover PD finished at #10 in the country, and we hope to finish closer to #1 this year.  We will have more Red Cross staff and beds available this year to accommodate a large turn-out for this great cause. 

Everyone who comes to donate blood will get a free Red Cross t-shirt, donuts and coffee, while supplies last.  They will also get to cast a vote for their favorite agency.  The agency with the most votes will get bragging rights and a traveling trophy!

To expedite the process, make an appointment before you arrive.  Visit, download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit (enter sponsor code HOOVER), or call 1-800-733-2767 to schedule your appointment today!
