The Bryant parks department will host a blood drive on Thursday from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Center at Bishop Park.
Benton and Bryant fire departments are going head-to-head for a blood-drive competition.
The winner will be the agency that recruits the most volunteer blood donors in a blood drawing Friday.
The American Red Cross will be taking donations from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Bryant Fire Department training room, 312 Roya Lane in Bryant.
The challenge is part of the agencies' participation in the American Red Cross "Battle of the Badges: Law Enforcement vs. Fire Department" program.
