Battle of Badges last event held in Elizabethton today


Elizabethton, TN (WJHL) – The battle to save lives and honor first responders continued today as the last battle of the badges blood drive ended this evening.

The last drive of the event was held at Oak Street Baptist Church this afternoon in Elizabethton

Everyone who donated blood got to vote for their favorite first responder team in the region.

Thomas Hensley of the Red Cross said, “Not only did they donate blood to help one person, they can actually help save three people. Three people’s lives can be touched. And it’s not just those people it can make a difference with but also their families.”

The votes will be tallied and the department with the most votes at the end of the drive will take home bragging rights and be honored by the American Red Cross.Copyright 2016 WJHL. All rights reserved.
