The Lubbock Police Department, Lubbock Fire Rescue, and the Lubbock Sheriff's Department are coming together to donate blood and challenge the community to step up and donate as well.

All blood donors will receive a special t-shirt, as well as an entry into a drawing for dozens of prizes.

Also on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the South Plains Mall's west parking lot will be the First Responder Appreciation Event.
