RRPD and RRFD will host their annual Battle of The Badges Blood Drive at the Police Department at 500 Quantum Rd.

The event will be from 1-6 p.m. It is funded by the health group, Vitalant.

They ask that everyone do their part for the community.

Here is their call to action:

The 12th Annual Battle of the Badges is a friendly competition among participating police, fire, and other first-responder units across the state of New Mexico to see which group can recruit the most blood donors by enlisting fellow officers, friends, family and the community to give lifesaving blood. This summer, your blood donation is critically needed.

Donors will receive a T-shirt, $5 gift card via email, and be entered for a chance to win one of three $3,000 gift cards.
