Canton, SD- Canton Police, Fire Department, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and Community Blood Bank will host the annual Heroes Behind the Badges blood drive event on Thursday, July 29 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Canton United Methodist Church. Currently, local blood supplies are at a critically low status, as many people are seeking medical care after the lifting of restrictions following the COVID shut down. “This friendly competition is a way to support your local heroes and local blood supply during the critical summer months. The only way to increase the blood supply for local patients is through volunteer blood donors to schedule their donation for the upcoming blood drive at the Canton Heroes Behind the Badges blood drive,” states Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank.
