Fallen Officers Blood Drives set for Tuesday
Throughout the summer months, the American Red Cross will participate in the statewide Fallen Officer Blood Drive Campaign. This is the eighth year the Red Cross will host blood drives across Indiana to honor fallen officers and raise awareness of the need for blood.
Last year, every county in Indiana held at least one Fallen Officer blood drive and more than 30,000 units of blood have been collected since the 2007 start of the Fallen Officer blood drives.
Local blood drives are set for:
• Tuesday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. at LaGrange First Church of God, 777 N. Detroit St., LaGrange.
• June 27 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the Nappanee Police/EMS, 301 W. Lincoln St., Nappanee.
To donate blood, call 1-800-733-2767 or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
