Battle of the Badges blood drive Friday

The Red Cross says blood donations usually slow down during the summer months and especially before the Fourth of July weekend.

So the North Little Rock Police and Fire Departments are going head to head against the Little Rock Departments in the Battle of the Badges blood drive Friday. They're encouraging members of the community to join them.

North Little Rock said they've had the most donations every year, except the first.
