Indiana Blood Center seeks donations for blood shortage

Monday kicked off "Bike to Work Week" in Michiana, and with so many folks getting their blood pumping out on their bikes, the Indiana Blood Center decided to hold a mobile blood drive.

The "Blood Bus" was parked outside the Morris Performing Arts Center to collect for a critical need for blood across the state of Indiana.

It only takes about a half-hour to donate. "Whether it's someone you know or don't know, it's really important to take that time to save a life," says blood tech Steve Elliott.

The mobile unit expected to get about 20 donations today.

All the blood stays within the community.
