A Note from the Indiana Blood Center:  Due to the recent inclement weather here in Indiana, the blood supply at Indiana Blood Center has been detrimentally affected. With typical donations decreasing around the holidays and coupling that with the winter weather here in Indiana, Indiana Blood Center is operating with a supply deficit and are urging donors to donate during the month of January to help reestablish the blood supply. Most people don’t realize the impact that our education partners have on our blood supply. Maconaquah Elementary has donated over 100 units of blood since 2013, that is over 300 lives saved. Wedesperately need your help again this January. Please come support Indiana Blood Center and donate your life saving gift.

Proud to be a
No Excuses University School!
Our students are college bound!
