INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 22, 2014) – A blood drive will again honor an Indianapolis Metropolitan police officer killed in the line of duty.
Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said the Fourth Annual Officer David Moore Memorial Blood Drive will be held on Friday, Jan. 24. His office is partnering with the Indiana Blood Center for the event, which will be held at the City Market.
Moore was shot by Thomas Hardy on Jan. 23, 2011. He died three days later from his injuries. Hardy is serving a life sentence without parole.
This is the fourth year for the blood drive in Moore’s memory. Curry said his goal is to have more than 90 donations. He will be joined by Lance Lewis, a recipient of Officer Moore’s organ donation, at the event to encourage and thank donors.
Donors must be 17 years old (16 with parental consent) and weigh at least 110 pounds. Those who are unable to attend the blood drive are encouraged to donate at any of Indiana Blood Center’s nine locations throughout the state. Please visit www.indianablood.org for more information.
