Hoosiers Urged to Donate Blood to Help Hurricane-Impacted Communities

Indiana’s lieutenant governor is calling on Hoosiers to donate blood, to help communities impacted by hurricanes. Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch says Hurricane Irma is expected to have a widespread impact like Hurricane Harvey, and blood supplies are already low.

She adds that the Indiana Blood Center has already provided 600 units of blood to patients in Texas, and state employees in Indianapolis are planning another blood drive next week at the Indiana Government Center.

Locally, you can donate blood at one of several events hosted by the American Red Cross. Blood drives will take place tomorrow from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Indiana National Guard Armory in Plymouth, and Tuesday from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Southwire in Bremen.
