Guns ‘N Hoses Community Blood Drive Set –August 14

August 1, 2014 – Ozark fire department and law enforcement staff are asking all area residents to come to the Guns ‘N Hoses blood drive with Arkansas Blood Institute (ABI). It will occur Thursday, August 14, from noon to 6:30 p.m., at Ozark City Hall.

To fuel a little healthy competition, donors will choose which department to support by donating on behalf of law enforcement or the fire department.

Not only will each blood donor save up to three lives by giving, each will also receive this year’s Guns ‘N Hoses T-shirt.

Anyone who is healthy and 16 years of age can donate*, and donations can be made every 56 days.

Patients in 21 hospitals across western and south central Arkansas rely solely on blood donors with Arkansas Blood Institute in their battles for life.
