Main Street School of Performing Arts Hosts Blood Drive
Main Street School of Performing Arts (MSSPA) will hold a Blood Drive on Thursday, December 20 from 10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the school located at 1320 Mainstreet in downtown Hopkins. The event, being conducted in partnership with Memorial Blood Centers, will bring much-needed blood donations for the upcoming holiday season, while helping raise funds for post-secondary scholarships for Seniors from MSSPA’s Dance Company and National Honor Society for Dance Arts—the two school groups organizing the blood drive.
“Over the course of two blood drives this winter we hope to have more than 100 donors contribute,“ said Lara Ciganko, MSSPA dance instructor. “We are set up for 31 donors for December 20th, and hope we fill to that capacity. From there, people can submit their information on the website for notification of the next blood drive, which we anticipate will be in February.” Ciganko continued, “This is a wonderful opportunity to raise upwards of $400 - $1,200 for our students’ post-secondary pursuits, while bringing important attention to the vital need for people to donate blood. We’re grateful for the partnership with Memorial Blood Centers and thank them for bringing this blood drive to our school and our community. Additionally, the Memorial Blood Centers is holding a drawing for donors to win a vacation getaway, so our donors may also win a vacation voucher. What a great opportunity to give to the community, to our students, and to know you may win a vacation. It’s a win-win-win proposition!”
The public is encouraged to participate. Appointments can be made online at www.mbc.org/searchdrives and by entering sponsor code 3732 or contact Lara Ciganko at 952-224-2363.
