The Grand Junction Police and Fire Departments will face each other in a "clash of the titans" to save lives.  Will you take part in the battle?

The Grand Junction Police Department and the Grand Junction Fire Department are reaching out to you in hopes you'll donate blood. The 3rd Annual Heroes Behind the Badge Blood Drive will commence May 15.

You are asked to donate blood and then choose your champion. You can make your blood donation in honor of the Grand Junction Police Department or the Grand Junction Fire Department.

The agency receiving the most donations will receive $500 to be donated to the charity of their choice. There will be several opportunities for you to donate at locations all over the valley.
