The City of Derby is holding its 3rd Annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive on August 29 & 30 at the Derby Welcome Center, 611 Mulberry Rd. The drive will run 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 29 and 1 to 6 p.m. on Aug. 30. 

This event serves as a friendly competition between Derby police and firefighters. If you donate blood, you get to submit a vote for police or fire. They are tied 1-1, so every vote counts.

“Your donations are important because they support our nation’s blood supply for those in need,” said Robert Lee, Police Chief. “The drive is a great time to come together as a community and support this worthy cause and have some fun along the way.”

To sign up, call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit www.redcrossblood.org. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments will be given priority.
