The Branson Fire and Police Department are in a competition today to help fill the need for Blood in the region.

The two departments are involved in “The Battle of the Badges” through the American Red Cross this afternoon from 1-6 at Branson’s First Presbyterian Church. Folks donating blood can designate which organization they wish to honor as part of the event.

Donors will receive a Battle of the Badges T-Shirt as well as a coupon for a free pint of Frozen Custard from Culver’s.
