In partnership with FMPD and Lee Health, the Jobbers-Miller family is organizing the blood drive to make a difference in our community in honor of their lost loved one.

A single blood donation can save as many as two lives, and the Southwest Florida community is encouraged to make life-saving 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.
