"Guns and Hoses" Winner
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office won the annual "Guns and Hoses" competition. The event is aimed at raising awareness about the need for blood donations. Representatives from community blood center LifeSouth say 1,000 donations are needed every week in order to ensure a safe blood supply.
The Alachua County Sheriff's Office had a total of 57 donations. It's a win that Sheriff Sadie Darnell is happy about.
"There is a lot of pride in this from the stand point of winning not once but now a second time in a row," said Sheriff Darnell. "People stepped up to the plate and did what needed to be done."
Along with mobile blood donation sites, LifeSouth has two centers open seven days a week in Gainesville.
