Blood donation is an easy and beneficial way to save a life. And now local area law enforcement, in association with United Blood Services, are teaming up for the Back the Badges Blood Drive.

The summer months are some of the hardest to get blood donations. That is why it is even more important to give this month.

Anyone who donates blood during the drive will receive a special t-shirt and be eligible to win other great prizes.

And on Saturday, July 29th from 10-3 there will be a special event for first responders at the South Plains Mall. They will have lots of activities, food trucks, and much more!
