Blood drive held in connection with 9/11 to benefit law enforcement

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The "United We Give, United We Live" blood drive is being held in connection with 9/11 as a reminder of how strong communities can be when they work together.

This year, LifeShare Blood Centers is donating $1 for every blood donation to Blue Forever, the organization that provides belt trauma kits for law enforcement officers.

The trauma kits that come from blood donations in Baton Rouge will go directly to Louisiana State Police Troop A.

You can donate at LifeShare on North Boulevard until 4:30 p.m.
