You can make a blood donation and help Greenwich's uniformed services in their annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive to be held Saturday, Dec. 8.
Members of the Greenwich Fire Department, Greenwich Police Department and Greenwich Emergency Medical Service will be engaging in some friendly competition to see which department donates the most blood in a drive for the American Red Cross. The drive is open to the public who also want to donate, according to police spokesman Lt. Kraig Gray.
The drive will be held in the Greenwich Police Department, 11 Bruce Pl. from 8 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.
The Greenwich Fire Department won the first competition in 2008. The Greenwich Police Department has won in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
