INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – A total of 400 Indiana businesses and religious institutions have pledged to raise 39,697 sleeves for Indiana Blood Center in 2014.

Annual pledges fulfilled by generous Hoosiers help to ensure a stable blood supply for patients at more than 60 hospitals.

Launched in 2013, “I Pledge” is Indiana Blood Center’s frequency program that encourages host organizations and donors to make an annual pledge – a commitment to a certain number of blood drives and donations throughout the year.

In addition to the participation from 400 host organizations, 4,602 donors enrolled in the “I Pledge” donor center program.

“Hoosier hospitality is evidenced through the level of support Indiana Blood Center has seen from host organizations and donors,” said Jeremy Watson, director of donor recruitment. “Each one of us can make a difference in our own way, but we commend “I Pledge” members for choosing to save lives and doing so on a regular basis.”

Businesses and religious institutions participating in the 2014 “I Pledge” program are identified by county and listed below.
