BSO joins with LifeShare for ‘Cuffs and Hoses’ blood drive


The Bossier Sheriff’s Office joined with LifeShare Blood Centers to host a “Cuffs & Hoses” promotion blood drive at the Viking Drive Substation in Bossier City.

Twenty-five donors arrived at the mobile donor coach in the substation parking lot during the four-hour period, and 23 were able to donate blood.

Law enforcement officers, firefighters and folks in the community helped provide the “Gift of Life,” and each donor received a special promotional t-shirt.

“These blood drives are so important to help others in need, and I encourage anyone who has an opportunity to donate blood to do so,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington. “You could be saving someone’s life.”
