Battle of the Badge Encourages Blood Donors

Posted: Updated:

SHERMAN, TX -- The Battle is of the Badge is back! It's the Sherman Police Department versus the Sherman Fire Department which are right across the street from each other.

Thursday and Friday, the blood bus from the Texoma Regional Blood Center will be parked in between the two departments collecting blood donations. "Something like this makes it more of a fun, happier atmosphere, and it's fun for the policemen and firemen and it's fun for us. We love doing the Battle of the Badges every year," said Carol Baker of the Texoma Regional Blood Center.

About ninety people donated their blood Thursday for the Battle of the Badge drive. The drive continues Friday all day at both the blood center on Texoma Parkway and on Travis Street between the two departments.
