Residents can donate blood Thursday to help a North Shore deputy who was shot in the line of duty.

St. Tammany deputy Justin Nail was shot on Easter Sunday while attempting to catch a car burglary suspect.

While Nail has not needed blood since the shooting, the blood center has opened an account to help him financially.

The center will issue a $10 credit for each blood donation received in Nail's name. 

Money raised will help pay for doctors visits and household expenses. 

Before he was shot, Nail worked as a mechanic to supplement his income.  He is not able to do that work as he recovers.
