Brenham police and firefighters are asking for the public to join them in rolling up their sleeves and giving the gift of life.
The Annual Brenham Guns and Hoses Blood Drive is set for thi weekend, with two opportunities to donate blood, Friday and Saturday.
Each year the police and firefighters engage in a friendly competition to see which department can gather the most donations of blood.

The drive will then move to the Firemen’s Training Center on Highway 290 West, Saturday from 9:00-to-3:00.
Lunch and refreshments will be served.
Everyone who attempts to donate will receive a free T-shirt and a certificate for a pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream.
