Iowa DPS Giving Back to the Community by Donating Blood

DES MOINES, Iowa – The Iowa Department of Public Safety (DPS) is partnering with the LifeServe Blood Center of Des Moines to give back to the community.

Dozens of DPS employees will be donating blood today from 9am – 1pm at the first annual DPS Blood Drive being held at the DPS Headquarters Building (215 East 7th Street, Des Moines).

Daily, members of DPS respond to gruesome crashes on Iowa roadways, some resulting in fatalities, others that lose critical amounts of blood. DPS encourages employees to donate blood, if possible, to help make an impact in the lives of those we protect and serve. Just one donation can impact the lives of up to three patients.

Media contact: Alex Murphy, Public Information Officer, Iowa Department of Public Safety, (515) 443-3014.
