The American Red Cross reports that every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, and that approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day to help meet this need. The Vincennes University Police Department and Indiana Fallen Officers will co-sponsor a Red Cross Blood Drive in memory of those who died while serving and protecting in Knox County and in honor of those who continue to serve. The blood drive is at the VU Police Department (1201 North 2nd Street) on July 5th from 1-5pm (eastern). To schedule a donation time, use the Red Cross app or visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter the sponsor keyword, VUPD. Participants should bring a driver's license or two other forms of identification and a list of current medications.
