Three-day blood drive in honor of fallen FMPD Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller kicks off Tuesday
The family of officer Adam Jobbers-Miller, the Fort Myers Police Department and Lee Health are partnering to host the fifth annual blood drive in honor of Jobbers-Miller’s memory.
The three-day blood drive kicks off with a ceremonial flag raising followed by opening remarks from the Jobbers-Miller family, Lt. Roger Valdivia from the Fort Myers Police Department and Julia Liebscher, chief nursing and operations executive for Lee Memorial Hospital, speaking on behalf of Lee Health.
Jobbers-Miller was shot in the line of duty in July 2018, and he spent a week at Lee Memorial Hospital before succumbing to his injuries. In partnership with the FMPD and Lee Health, the Jobbers-Miller family is organizing the blood drive to make a difference in our community, increase blood donations to help save lives, and honor their lost loved one.
A single blood donation can save as many as two lives, and the Southwest Florida community is encouraged to make lifesaving donations as we remember the service and sacrifice of officer Jobbers-Miller.
All blood donors will receive an officer Adam Jobbers-Miller T-shirt in memory of his brave service to the city of Fort Myers.
The blood drive will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at Lee Memorial Hospital at 2776 Cleveland Ave., Fort Myers; and Thursday at the Fort Myers Police Department at 2210 Widman Way, Fort Myers.
