Get ready to give the gift of life in honor of fallen APD officer, Rodney Holder, with the annual 'Guns & Hoses' Blood Drive.

This blood drive is a friendly competition between Abilene Police and the Abilene Fire Department. The drive, which was started in honor of fallen officer Rodney Holder, not only encourages first-responders to donate blood, but the community as well.

This year, there will be two different locations where you can make a donation, Hendrick Medical Blood Center at 1150 N. 18th street or you can find the 'Bloodmobile' at the KTAB/KRBC studios, 4510 S 14th on Wednesday, June 27th.

It only takes a few minutes to give the gift of life. Just simply designate your donation for either 'Guns' or "Hoses' which will ultimately benefit the entire community.
