The Jefferson City Fire and Police departments are teaming with the American Red Cross for the annual Battle of the Badges blood drive to see who can recruit the most eligible donors in their community to donate blood.
Individuals can join the Battle of the Badges blood drive by donating May 6 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Jefferson City Elks Lodge 513, 901 Ellis Blvd., in Jefferson City. Donors’ blood donations will help decide who wins bragging rights.
Battle of the Badges is a friendly competition to encourage community members to join their local first responders and perform their own heroic act with a blood donation. All presenting donors will get to cast a vote to help decide the winner, enjoy a Root beer float after donating and receive a free Red Cross Battle of the Badges T-shirt, while supplies last.
