Our community needs your help. Join us on October 14 for a blood and donation drive – a community giving day at the Highland Park Community Center in partnership with Memorial Blood Center, Highland District Council, Highland Business Association, Friends of Highland Arts, Macalester-Groveland Community Council and St. Paul Parks and Recreation. Drop off nonperishable foods and personal care items anytime during the day and/or donate blood by appointment. Please wear a mask and follow COVID-19 safety protocols.
BLOOD DRIVE: 8 am – 1 pm (by appointment) in the gym at the Highland Park Community Center
If you’re feeling healthy and well, help protect our community’s blood supply by donating at the blood drive. All blood types are urgently needed, especially O negative (O-) and O positive (O+).
