Fridley Public Schools

The Minnesota Honor Society’s Blood Drive was held on November 18 at Fridley High School. Both students and staff signed up to donate blood during the day. There were 67 blood donors, including 32 first-time donors. In total 44 pints of blood were donated which can help up to 132 people. 

Students had a variety of reasons why they wanted to donate blood, from wanting to save lives, to wanting to help other people, and just because “it’s really cool.” Donors received a t-shirt and snacks after donating.

“The honor society students volunteered the whole day,” said MHS advisor Christine Nalepka. “They checked-in each donor, and gave support during and after the donation process as well. All around it was a very good day!”
