Farmington Hills, Michigan

Join the "Battle of the Badges" Blood Drive  at the Costick Center on August 21 

The Southeastern Michigan branch of the American Red Cross will sponsor a blood drive on Thursday, August 21 from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the Costick Center on Eleven Mile Road between Middlebelt and Inkster in Farmington Hills.

 This blood drive will be the annual "Battle of the Badges," a friendly competition between the Farmington Hills Police and Fire Departments.  Donors can cast a "vote" with their blood donation to help raise the tally of either department. 

During the summer, there is a significant decrease in the number of blood donations while there's an increase in the need for blood.  August is traditionally the most difficult month to collect donations and local inventories are now at a critically low level.  Members of the community are urged to turn out for the "Battle of the Badges" and do their part to help counteract this shortfall. 

Hospitals in southeastern Michigan require over 900 units of blood each day to meet patient needs.  Thousands of patients in nearly 70 Michigan hospitals are dependent on blood for the treatment of cancer and other diseases, for surgeries and organ transplants, and for emergency and trauma care. 

To make an appointment to donate on August 21, call 248-473-1800 or register online at  Enter the sponsor code costickcenter and follow the instructions to set up an appointment time for the blood drive. 

Giving blood takes approximately one hour.  Donors must be in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be 17 years of age or older.  For more information, call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or 1-888-288-2525 or visit

Help support the local Red Cross, shop or eat in Farmington and Farmington Hills.  Both of these communities are a great place to spend the afternoon.  Have a great day.   Russ Ravary
