(MENA) The Red and Blue in Polk County want to get the RED out of you on Monday, June 24th, with a blood drive challenge at the Old Historic Armory in downtown Mena.
Police Officers from Grannis and Mena, along with the Polk County Sheriff’s Department will take on all of the volunteer fire companies in the county, plus the Mena Fire Department on which department can raise the most blood drawn in the six hour event at the Armory.
Officials are asking that you “Be a Hero… Give Blood” and go out that day to make a difference in the community.
The event is co-sponsored by the University of Arkansas – Rich Mountain and The Arkansas Blood Institute.
Each donor will receive one entry to Magic Springs and also a limited edition Boots and Badges T-Shirt, while they last.
