WATERTOWN, S.D.–Day two of the 19th annual “Heroes Behind The Badges” Blood Drive at the Watertown Mall scheduled for today has been cancelled.

Ken Versteeg of the Community Blood Bank of Sioux Falls says it’s due to blizzard conditions that are expected to materialize across northeast South Dakota today.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all blood donations this year were by appointment only.

Versteeg says people scheduled to donate blood via appointment today have been contacted, and alerted of the cancellation.
