Blood drive honors fallen officers

Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati invites blood donors to give blood in memory of the law enforcement officers who gave everything during the Indiana Fallen Officers Drive Tuesday, May 29.

The blood drive will be held at Lawrenceburg Speedway on 101 Speedway Drive from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Agner Hall.

“All of us at Hoxworth Blood Center feel privileged to participate once again in the Indiana Fallen Officers blood drive,” said Alecia Lipton, spokesperson for Hoxworth Blood Center.  Blood donations typically dip during the summer months, but Lipton stressed that maintaining a stable blood supply is crucial in the event of an emergency, like when a law enforcement officer is injured in the line of duty.
