United Blood Services is encouraging all those who can donate blood to help save a life in honor of our local heroes. With just one blood donation, a donor can save up to three people.

The annual Battle of the Badges will take place this Friday, Aug. 14-16 at Cielo Vista Mall and Mesilla Valley Mall in Las Cruces. Every donor will receive a Battle of the Badges T-shirt and a chance to win four tickets to a Chihuahuas' baseball game.
