Blood center makes appeal for donations


INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Blood Center has issued an urgent plea for people to donate blood as soon as possible.

Currently, less than two days’ supply of some blood types is remaining. Ideally, a three-day supply or more is needed to meet the needs of nearly 80 Indiana hospitals that rely on Indiana Blood Center to provide life-saving blood, platelets and plasma.

All blood types are needed but O-positive and O-negative blood are at critically low levels now.

Hoosiers can donate any Indiana Blood Center donor outlet. The nearest one is at 3450 N. Meridian St. in Indianapolis.
