BEAUMONT — Local law enforcement and fire fighters are hosting Cuffs & Hoses Blood Drives this July throughout Orange County. Members of the organizations are giving blood and inviting the public to join them in making a difference in someone else’s life through blood donation. Participating blood donors will receive a limited edition Cuffs & Hoses t-shirt, while supplies last.

“First responders know that having blood available in times of emergency is truly lifesaving. We hope the community will join them and their colleagues to help others and honor their commitment to our community,” says Tina Martinez, spokesperson for LifeShare Blood Center.

“Our police and firemen put their lives on the line every day to insure the protection of life and property,” says Fred R. Hanauer III, Chief of Police, Pinehurst Police Department. “They do it with enthusiasm and zeal with a sheer desire to serve the public, not for the meager paycheck they receive.  In their endeavors, unfortunate incidents and accidents occur that result in the heroes becoming the victim.  During these unfortunate times it is refreshing to know that LifeShare Blood Center is there to supply us with the lifesaving blood we desperately need.  Like our first responders, LifeShare does this and so much more for our community and it is imperative they receive ample donations to keep their supplies of blood to an adequate level.  This is your opportunity to give back to our local heroes by supplying lifesaving blood in their honor.  Thank you for supporting this worthwhile cause,” he continues.
