Battle of the Badges blood drive held

August 2, 2022

Centralia American Legion Post 446 held a special blood drive called the Battle of the Badges on Thursday, July 28, 2022. Do you bleed red (firemen)? Do you bleed blue (police)? Or do you bleed gold (IL State Police)?

Sixty-two donors showed up for the drive. The goal was set at 70. The winner of the battle was the Illinois State Police with 20 votes, but in my opinion, everyone that showed up to donate their time and their blood were the winners.
