WACO (August 20, 2013)--Roll up your sleeve and help your “favorite” local law enforcement team by making a blood donation on their behalf.

The Waco Fire Department, Waco Police Department and the McLennan County Sheriff’s Department are all competing for the most votes.

Donors will specify which team they aim to help, and the team with the most votes will receive a traveling trophy and bragging rights.

Tuesday was the first day to participate and the competition will end Sunday.

Donors can participate Wednesday from 6 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at the Waco Association of Realtors on N. 44th and on Thursday, residents can donate from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Waco Police Department on Pine Avenue, 1:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at the Waco Association of Realtors and from 6 a.m. until 11 a.m. at the McLennan County Jail on E. Hwy. 6.

On Friday, donors can visit the jail from 6 a.m. until 11 a.m. or the Waco Association of Realtors from 6 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

There are no set locations to donate Saturday but on Sunday, community members can head out to the new H-E-B on S. Valley Mills Drive from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m.

Donors will receive a Battle of the Badges t-shirt while supplies last.
