Madison Police and Firefighters use September 11 as a day to give back in memory of their fallen colleagues.
They will commemorate the day by hosting a public blood drive at Blooming Grove Fire Station (1880 S. Stoughton Rd, Madison, WI).
The Never Forget drive will be held September 11, 2013 from 7:00 am to 11:30 am.
Firefighters and police officers will engage in some friendly competition to benefit the American Red Cross by tracking the number of people each team can get to donate blood.
If you can't donate on September 11th you can still support this blood drive by going to either of the fixed donation sites between September 11th - 18th:
American Red Cross East Donor Center: 2109 Zeier Rd.
American Red Cross West Donor Center: 4860 Sheboygan Ave.
Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcomed. For an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org and use sponsor code 0324824, or search for the drive using the date September 11, 2013, or call (800) RED-CROSS.
