[ISP] Eighth Annual Indiana Fallen Officers Blood Drive
Start Date: 6/3/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 6/3/2014
Entry Description

The 2014 Fallen Officers Blood Drive is underway with donation sites located in nearly every county statewide.  The Indiana State Police ask you to consider giving a little in memory of those who gave all.

Please click here to find a Fallen Officer Blood Drive in your area.

On July 10, 2001, Sgt. Dan R. Starnes of the Morgan County, IN Sheriff’s Department lost his life as a result of gunshot wounds sustained during a line of duty gun battle with a burglary suspect four weeks earlier. To keep his memory alive, his wife, Janice Starnes organized a blood drive each year since in Dan’s memory. In 2007, she expanded the blood drive statewide and renamed it the Indiana Fallen Officers Blood Drive. The 2014 drive is underway with donation sites located in nearly every county statewide.

Last year, every county in Indiana held at least one Fallen Officer blood drive and a total of 4,980 units of blood were collected.  This year, the goal is to surpass 2009 collections and honor men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

“Unfortunately, three new names were added to our list of Indiana fallen officers since last summer.  This blood drive campaign helps ensure they are not forgotten while also raising awareness of the dangers officers face every day and the need for blood,” says Starnes.

“Most encouraging,” Starnes says, “is that the blood drives continue to grow and our officers are not forgotten thanks to the people who come to give blood in their memory.”

Honor the memory and sacrifice of Indiana's fallen officers by donating blood.  Find the nearest blood drive location by visiting http://www.redcrossblood.org/make-donation-v6
