Today: Cabot first responders are looking for citizens to support their efforts through blood donation with Arkansas Blood Institute. Those who give at the Boots & Badges blood drive today, July 25, will provide blood needed to save local lives, such as those that firefighters and law enforcement officers rescue. Anyone 16 years or older* is urged to stop by the Veteran’s Park Event Center between 2 and 6 p.m. All donors will receive special-edition Boots & Badges T-shirts, and a voucher for a free admission for one to the Little Rock Zoo. They will also take part in a little healthy competition by designating their donations to either the fire department or law enforcement as each department strives to top the other with the most blood donations. Appointments for the blood drive may be made by calling 877-340-8777 or visiting arkbi.org.
