The Floyd County Police Department, Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, and Blood Assurance of Rome hosted The “Heroes Unified” community wide blood drive on Wednesday morning.
Blood Assurance is in critical need of donations this year because of restrictions in place from COVID-19 Precautions, so the Community wide Blood Drive asked for anyone who was able to come join and help rebuild the stock of available blood for our community – One unit can save three lives!
We spoke with Sergeant Chris Fincher of the FCPD on what this event means for the community (in the video below).
WRGA’s own Digital News Editor and Video Reporter, Ethan Garrett, got in on the fun and donated blood for the first time as well!
