Sheldon, Iowa — The Heroes Behind The Badges Blood Drive winner for 2013 is . . . The Sheldon Police and Sheldon Community Ambulance Team.
We talked with Ken Ver Steeg of the Community Blood Bank, who says he was happy with the results.
He says the team of the Police Department and SCAT picked up the win with 47 donation votes. The team of the Sheldon Emergency Management Agency and Sheldon Fire Company had 38.
He says a lot of people showed up to give blood, and he says that was somewhat surprising.
Last year, the Fire Department and EMA team beat the Police and SCAT team with 59 to 58, for a close finish. Last year’s total number of donations was the highest ever for the event.
