Battle of the Badges Blood Drive set for June 11

Battle of the Badges Car Wash 2020

Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. Hastings first responders are turning the need for blood donations into a friendly competition.

The Hastings Police Department is looking to hold onto its title and the Hastings Fire and Rescue is working toward an upset at this year’s Battle of the Badges Blood Drive.

The competition to secure blood donations for the American Red Cross is scheduled for June 11 at the Adams County Fairgrounds. Donors can sign up here or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. Use sponsor code “Tri City BOB” to support the event.

Once a participant has given blood, they’ll be able to choose which organization to support, and donations will be tallied at the end of the day to determine a winner.

Once the Hastings donations are counted, they’ll be compared to Battle of the Badges competitions across the tri-cities to announce an overall winner. Hastings won last year’s tri-city competition, and has a goal of 120 units of blood to help maintain the title.
