Blood drive honors fallen Columbia officer
You can help to honor a fallen police officer and give the gift of life.
The annual Molly Bowden Memorial Blood Drive will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday at Grace Bible Church on Blue Ridge in Columbia.
Officer Bowden died in 2005, a month after being shot during a routine traffic stop on Nifong Boulevard.
The drive is not only a way to honor the officer, but also others who serve the community.
Everyone who shows up to donate will get a Red Cross t-shirt.
You can also purchase other items, with the money going to the Molly Bowden Memorial Scholarship at Columbia College.
