A second day of blood donation brought dozens of friends, fellow officers and health care workers to Wishard Hospital Wednesday.

As Chief Medical Officer of the Indiana Blood Center, Dr. Dan Waxman said he couldn't help but be inspired by what he saw in Wishard's Myers Auditorium.

"I don't know how many things you can do as a volunteer in this day and age where it is going to immediately impact up to three lives.  One donation can be divided into three sources of blood," Waxman said.

A majority of the blood donation volunteers had already signed up to give as members of the medical community but the others who came were members of the Indianapolis community who said they wanted to do something to honor the memory of fallen IMPD officer David Moore.

IMPD Sgt. Fred Ilnicki fought back tears when asked about what the blood drive means to him.

"Something like this hopefully motivates other people whether they are part of the department or not because there are a lot of people out there besides Dave [Moore] who need this blood every day," Sgt. Ilnicki said.

Stephanie Bell came to Wishard Wednesday because she said she felt like she needed to do something for Moore. He was a friend she met in 2003 through Purdue University's Marine ROTC program.

"When I moved to Indianapolis in 2008 he helped me move into my apartment and I had been to his house a few times. I enjoyed knowing him," Bell said.

The Indiana Blood Center has donation drives daily in five fixed donation sites across Central Indiana including Carmel, Fishers, Greenwood, Avon, Muncie, Lafayette, Columbus and at 34th and Meridian Streets in Indianapolis.
