WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Indiana Blood Center bus made a trip to Buck Creek United Methodist Church this weekend.
The blood drive gathered about 16 blood donations from area residents.
Officials say it takes more than 550 pints of blood a day just to supply hospitals across the state.
Blood center supervisor Teresa Gick says one pint of blood can help three people.
"Try it once. We will talk with you. We will work with you, we will get you through the fear," Gick said. "We try to take that into consideration, so you can be a donor and that way you know how it is, and you can conquer fear by attempting to donate."
If you would like to donate and cannot make it to the blood center, Gick says the bus will be making trips around Purdue's campus all week.
It was a packed house for the pay-off of a project two years in the making.
The man charged in connection with the death of a Flora woman has been cleared, more than six years after her death and two years after he was charged.
It's been nearly a month since a tornado damaged Southwestern Middle School and Mintonye Elementary School, giving faculty the task of helping students transition to their new surroundings.
