The Crawfordsville Strawberry Festival

Strawberry Festival Blood Drive
The Strawberry Festival, in conjunction with Versiti Indiana Blood Center, will be hosting a blood drive on Sunday from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm.

Life-saving blood transfusions are very commonly required for people of all ages. About one in seven people entering a hospital will need blood.  Every three seconds, someone needs blood.

Nearly half of the U.S. population is eligible to donate; yet only five percent do. Every blood donation can save as many as three lives. Indiana Blood Center encourages anyone who has never given or who has not given blood in the last several months to consider donating. The only requirements are that donors must be at least 17 years of age, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, and be in good general health. Donors who are 16 may give blood with parental permission and a completed donation permission form. Blood donors must present a picture ID such as a driver’s license.

Versiti Indiana Blood Center is a vital link in Indiana's health care infrastructure, supplying an average of 550 units of blood to more than 60 Indiana hospitals every day. The Versiti Indiana Blood Center is a non-profit community service organization that has served Indiana hospitals since 1952.  

The Indiana Blood Center mobile unit will be located on East Pike Street, across from the City Building, on Sunday. You may pre-register by going to
