BATTLE FOR BLOOD
Highland will have bragging rights for the next year as the community that led the township in Battle for Blood.
North Township Trustee Frank Mrvan said the real winners are those who will benefit from the blood drive.
“A total of 72 North Township residents gave the gift of life by donating a pint of blood during this annual effort,” Mrvan said. “We congratulate Highland residents, who donated 23 units of the 72 pints of blood that were donated.”
Munster was a close second with 22 donors, East Chicago was third with 13, Hammond 11 and Whiting six.
“We helped save as many as 216 lives,” Mrvan said. “I want to thank everyone who took the time to donate blood. Summer is a critical time for blood need, and too often, our blood banks run short. That has been the case this summer. The support of community organizations has helped ensure our hospitals have the blood they need when they need it.”
