The Menomonie Police Department, Menomonie Fire Department, Dunn County Sheriff’s Office and UW-Stout Police Department are preparing for the first-ever Battle of the Badges blood drive this week.
In this friendly competition, first responders see who can recruit the most eligible blood donors to join them in this life-saving endeavor.
Additional time slots had to be added to accommodate the number of donors wishing to donate and support the cause. Including the added times, a total of 79 out of 80 possible time slots have been filled.
Though the time slots available for the Battle of the Badges blood drive may be full, there are other opportunities to donate blood locally.
