Blood and Donation Drive

10:00am, Friday, June 25, 2021

Our community needs your help. Join us on June 25 for a blood and donation drive – a community giving day 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. It’s simple and safe and centralized at the Highland Park Community Center; you can drop off nonperishable foods anytime during the day and/or donate blood by appointment. Please wear a mask and follow COVID-19 safety protocols.

BLOOD DRIVE: 10 am – 3 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+).

Memorial Blood Center will be giving away a pair of Saints tickets for the game on Friday, July 16th to one blood drive donor! Must be signed up using the link below to be eligible for the giveaway.
