INDIANAPOLIS — Versiti Blood Center of Indiana and the Girls Scouts of Central Indiana are partnering today to thank donors. The annual event has become unofficially dubbed as ‘Thin Mint Thursday.’

“More than a cookie, Thin Mint Thursday is a way to thank our generous blood donors for their lifesaving gifts,” said area Vice President at Versiti, Penny Schroeder. “We are grateful to partner with the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana to save lives and help girls thrive.”

All attempting donors at Versiti Indiana donor centers will receive a package of thin mint cookies.
