TERRE HAUTE — The Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Blood Center are bringing the 13th annual Bleed Blue Blood Drive to Terre Haute on Saturday. Participants will receive a regulation-sized Colts football featuring Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, while supplies last.

The drive is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Indiana Blood Center, 2021 S. Third St.

The annual, month-long Bleed Blue Blood Drive traditionally attracts more than 5,000 donors to Indiana Blood Center each December, a time when blood supplies can become low due to the busy holiday season. Blood supply at Indiana Blood Center supports Union Hospital and Terre Haute Regional Hospital, along with more than 60 other hospitals around Indiana over the holidays and throughout the year.

Appointments are encouraged as openings to donate fill up quickly. To schedule an appointment at Bleed Blue visit indianablood.org/bleedblue or call 800-632-4722.
