(West Fargo, ND) -- West Fargo's Battle of the Badges Blood Drive is back for the holiday season.

West Fargo's Police and Fire Departments are going head-to-head in a competition to see who can collect the most blood donations from the community, and you can help decide who wins. The blood drive is hosted at the West Fargo Conference Center at the DoubleTree by Hilton, and runs from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, 11:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, and 8:30 a.m to 1 p.m. on Friday. Donations then are dedicated to either of the departments, with the winning team getting a trophy and bragging rights for the year. 

“Team law was proud to bring home the trophy once again last year,” said Chief Pete Nielsen. “I encourage all community members to come donate for either team as we work to fill an ongoing critical need throughout our community.”
