HHSB Hosting Blood Drive
Hoosier Heartland State Bank is once again hosting a blood drive on Tuesday, March 28, 2023 at 9:45 a.m. – 2:15 p.m. The blood drive will be held at the HHSB – Crawfordsville South branch 1661 US Highway 231 South, Crawfordsville. Help make a difference and donate!
Blood is unique in our healthcare ecosystem. It cannot be synthetically made, meaning volunteers are the only way to provide blood to those in need. And the demand is great: every two seconds, someone in America needs a blood transfusion. You can give the gift of life at our Blood Drive.

1 in 7 patients entering a hospital require blood to be available. This ranges from trauma victims to patients battling sickle cell disease or Thalassemia, or to ensure a successful organ or bone marrow transplant. Cancer patients use 25% of all blood donations and blood transfusions are needed in one out of every 83 newborn deliveries in America today, a rate that has increased by more than 50% between 2006 and 2015. The list goes on.
In short, all of us are likely to know someone who will need blood. Despite this, only 3% of all Americans donate blood. A reality that should trouble us all.
