EAST CHICAGO | Will you answer the call? Mayor Anthony Copeland, and the City of East Chicago, challenges you to participate in the 3rd Annual North Township Battle for Blood!

Support your community and join the Battle for Blood on Thursday, June 27 from 8 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., at Wicker Park Club House in Highland. The North Township Battle for Blood will pit five communities against each other to see who can contribute the most blood. Communities include:

  • East Chicago
  • Hammond
  • Highland
  • Munster
  • Whiting

Please sign up to donate by visiting redcrossblood.org/make-donation or calling

1- 800-RED-CROSS.

This annual, good-natured rivalry among communities in North Township helps ensure the blood supply keeps pace with demand during the summer. By donating blood through the American Red Cross, you may give a hospital patient in need the most precious gift of all: life.

Give blood during the North Township Battle for Blood and receive a coupon for a free pint of Culver’s Frozen Custard and a commemorative t-shirt and refreshments.

Our goal is to collect at least 80 pints of blood to help up to 240 patients in need.

The North Township Battle for Blood is sponsored by the North Township Trustee Frank Mrvan.

For questions, please contact your American Red Cross Representative, Lori Caputo, 260-466-3793 or lori.caputo@redcross.org.
