Battle of the Badges Blood Drive happening this week

The Annual "Battle of the Badges" blood drive is currently underway. The event is sponsored by the American Red Cross each year with the purpose of the battle to bring awareness and encourage donors.

The friendly competition between the Emporia Police and Lyon County Sheriffs versus the Emporia Fire Department is generally the largest blood drive in Emporia. Last year, 223 units of blood were collected.

The drive will be held at the 12th Avenue Baptist Church from noon - 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 15, and 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16 and from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 17.

Law enforcement officers and firefighters will be on hand to assist the Red Cross, grilling hotdogs and serving lunch to those who donate. Law enforcement officers hope to retain the trophy from their 122 – 114 win over the firefighters last year.

We encourage everyone to come and eat lunch, donate blood, vote for law enforcement officers and save a life. For more information, contact Susan Faler: 316-554-4807 or via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
