HOPE – A school and community blood drive is set for Thursday at Hope High School through the sponsorship of the HHS Student Council.

LifeShare Blood Center will be on campus at HHS from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the school auditorium, according to Lena VanCamp, student council sponsor.

“HHS students may sign up for the blood drive by picking up a sheet outside my room,” VanCamp said. “Members of the community, including parents, are more than welcome to donate, as well.”

Donors must be at least 16 years old, she said.

“With no substitute for human blood, volunteer blood donations save lives here in our community every day,” VanCamp said.

She said statistically one in three people will require blood at some time in their life.

Questions concerning the blood drive may be directed to Ms. VanCamp through the HHS office at 870-777-3451.
