HCSO Co-Sponsors Memorial Blood Drive for Lamar Moore
Hamilton County, TN - As a continuation of Blood Assurance's Hero Week, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, in conjunction with the Chattanooga Police Department, is co-sponsoring a local blood drive on Monday, June 29th, in honor of long-time Blood Assurance supporter and donor, Lamar Moore.
For many years, Lamar Moore served as the Executive Director of the Fellowship of Christian Peace Officers (FCPO) for the Chattanooga and Hamilton County area. During his tenure as Executive Director, Mr. Moore offered guidance and wisdom to numerous law enforcement agencies, officials, and officers.
Those who knew him best, knew he was an avid supporter of giving blood in support of Blood Assurance. In fact, Blood Assurance states, as part of his dedication to helping those in need, Mr. Moore donated on average, (24) times per year with an estimated cumulative lifetime total of more than (50) gallons of blood!
Lamar Moore was also widely known for his support of law enforcement charities and was instrumental in starting the "Battle of the Badges" and served as the Committee Treasurer for "Guns and Hoses."
This year, let us continue Lamar's spirit of generosity and donate blood in his honor to help those in need.
The Lamar Moore Blood Drive will take place on Monday, June 29th, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Blood Mobile located at 600 Market Street directly in front of the Courts Building. Please make every effort to attend and help us honor the memory and generosity of Lamar Moore.
Those who are unable to donate during this time may do so at any time during the week of June 29th - July 3rd at the Blood Assurance Building located across from the UTC Arena. Make sure you tell them you are donating in honor of Lamar Moore! Participants will receive a free snack, T-shirt, and the chance to win a new gas grille!
