Crowder’s Pharmacy giving back to the community with Red Cross blood drive


Crowder's Pharmacy Blood Drive


Bedford, Indiana -- Crowder’s Pharmacy will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on February 28, 2024 from 10:00am to 4:00om at Crowder’s Plaza. (inside old GNC building location at 625 16th St, Bedford, IN 47421)


For more information or to make an appointment to donate, call 812.275.5949 or sign up online at redcrossblood.org with sponsor code CROWDER’S.


“Hosting a blood drive coincides with Crowder’s core values of giving back to the community,” said Ralph Anderson. “With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor.”


Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims, according to the Red Cross.


“The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition. We urge eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood.”


Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative. According to the Red Cross, type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone, and is often used to treat trauma patients.
