Save the date for the Annual Blood Drive May 10th 
The Windsor Heights Police Department has partnered with LifeServe to host a blood drive. There's no substitute for human blood and it can't be created in a lab. The only way our local hospital partners get blood to their patients is when generous citizens take an hour to roll up your sleeve and give a lifesaving gift!
Please take an hour to make sure local hospital patients get the blood they need to survive!
