64th-roc-blood-drive

Every pint carries a chance to save a life. The 64th ROC Plymouth Police Academy hosted the Brigham and Women’s Hospital / Dana Farber Cancer Institute mobile blood drive on the academy campus on August 24, 2017. From 9am when the van’s door opened until the end of the day, a steady stream of Student Officers stepped up to donate 15 minutes and some of their blood.  As a combat veteran, I am aware of the importance of a blood transfusion.  Most blood transfusion were made possible because of people’s kindness and willingness to share something they have plenty of.

Cliché’ as it may sound, the members of the 64th ROC are here because we truly care about our community.  Our ultimate purpose is to protect life and this is just one simple way to help.

Once we step out of the van, we have no idea whose life might change using our blood, and it doesn’t matter. If even one person gets a second chance using our blood, we’ve done our job.  We are proud of our decision to serve our community and do not take this vital function and tremendous responsibility for granted.
