Red Cross Seeking Donors, Drive Hosts

Though the times may feel different, the American Red Cross reminds all citizens the need for blood remains constant. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, people across the country and here in Indiana have stepped up to donate, but more donations are still needed during this challenging time.  The Red Cross is also looking for organizations to host a blood drive this fall to help ensure a strong blood supply for emergencies. Numerous blood drives are coming up in early to mid August in Jasper, La Porte, Lake and Porter Counties. For a complete list of blood drives in the area, you can visit our website.
