The annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive will be taking place in communities throughout New Mexico and will be coming to Roswell in early August.

Vitalant, a nonprofit community blood-service provider, is putting on the event Thursday and Friday, Aug. 1-2, at the Roswell Chamber of Commerce at 131 W. Second St. The blood drive will be open Aug. 1 from 1 to 6 p.m. and Aug. 2 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

People are asked to donate blood and show their support for local police and fire agencies. Everyone giving blood that day can designate which agency they would like to get credit for their donation in this friendly and worthwhile competition. Donors will receive a free T-shirt.

People can make an appointment to donate, but walk-ins are also welcome. To make an appointment online for the Roswell event, www.bloodhero.com/index.cfm?group=op. People can also call 575-840-8178 to make an appointment.
