Both officers were loved and respected in their community and are missed.
The families of both men invite the community to give blood in their names. “Nick was a very caring and thoughtful guy,” said Coleen Schultz, Nick’s mother. “He looked after his family and friends and was loved by many.”
“We would love to see the community give blood to honor our fallen officers,” said Sue Scott, Charlie’s wife.
“Hosting this blood drive in their names is a wonderful way to remember Charlie and Nick and help patients in need,” said Ashley Holland, account manager for the American Red Cross.
This blood drive is one of a series of Fallen Officer blood drives held across the state of Indiana from May through August to honor local fallen officers and allow people to give blood in their memory.
Every two seconds in the United States blood is needed to respond to patient emergencies, including accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease. The Red Cross must collect nearly 14,000 blood and platelet donations every day for the patients at about 2,600 hospitals nationwide.
