Lubbock, TX – United Blood Services is inviting everyone to one of Lubbock’s biggest blood drives! The Back the Badges blood drive is a community blood drive being held to help combat summertime blood shortages at our local hospitals.

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

This blood drive is essential because each year it gets harder to maintain a stable blood supply during the summer months.  With an increase in travel, busy summer schedules, and a rise of accidents during the summer, the importance of a secure blood supply is that much greater.

Anyone that donates will receive a special t-shirt, as well as be entered into a drawing for dozens of cool prizes!

There will be a special First Responders Appreciation event in the West parking lot of South Plains Mall on Saturday, July 28th from 10:00am- 3:00pm.  There will be fun activities for everyone!  Activities include: food trucks, games, vendor booths, and a chance to meet, thank, and speak with your local First Responder heroes!
