Don’t forget that the first-ever Stephenville Battle of the Badges blood drive event is set for 10 a.m.-5 p.m. this Friday, May 22, at the Cowboy Plaza across from City Hall on West Washington Street.

Stephenville Assistant Police Chief Jason Halsey said that the Stephenville Police and Stephenville Fire Department will be battling to see which department can have the most blood donated. Members of the public will be able to select a badge as they give their donation.

Carter BloodCare will have two buses on site, and food will be provided to the public by the Stephenville Police Association.
