Battle of the Badge Will be Bloody

NORFOLK - Northeast Nebraskans are asked to donate blood Friday and support their favorite first responders – police or fire crews.  The “Battle of the Badge” blood drive will be held from noon until 6 Friday in the parking lot east of the Norfolk Fire Division building at 7th Street and Koenigstein Avenue. The event pits police officers against firemen.  The goal for the Battle of the Badge is 42 units, and those wishing to make an appointment may call Susie at 402-844-2050, and to designate at that time if they are donating for the Fire or Police Division.  If donating blood on Friday is not possible for you, please consider donating Tuesday from 11:30 until 5:30 at the Norfolk Blood Station, or at the next Red Cross blood drive in your community.
