Hopkins High School is hosting a Memorial Blood Center bloodmobile on Friday, April 26. In addition to saving lives, the donations from the blood drive will help students pay for college. For every unit of blood donated at the drive, Memorial Blood Center will provide scholarship money to college bound Hopkins High School students.
The blood drive will be held at Hopkins High School, 2400 Lindbergh Dr., in the bloodmobile. It will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The donation goal is 100 units of blood, which would save about 300 lives.
Parents and community members can schedule their donation time and fill out their health history online at www.mbc.org through the Hero Hub. The sponsor code is 1505. Donors are encouraged to sign up online prior to donating. It typically takes one hour for a person to give blood.
If you have questions about the blood drive, please contact Hopkins school nurse Shannon Sinkel at 952-988-4494 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
