There's still time for you to roll up your sleeves today and donate blood for a good cause. The American Red Cross is sponsoring the 'Battle of the Badges' blood drive until 7:45 this Thursday evening.
The Red Cross is currently in critical need status and your donation does make a difference.
Today's blood drive is a friendly competition between the Farmington Hills Police and Fire departments. You can help by casting a vote with your own blood donation to help raise the tally of either department.
The Battle of the Badges is being held at the Costick Center on Eleven Mile Road in Farmington Hills.
Donors must be in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be 17 years of age or older (16 year olds can donate with parental consent.)
To make an appointment to donate on August 15, go to http://www.givelife.org/. Enter the sponsor code costickcenter and follow the instructions to set up an appointment.
For more information, call 1-800-REDCROSS or the Costick Center at 248-473-1800.
