HANCOCK — Hancock Central High School’s Interact Club is teaming up with the U.P. Regional Blood Center in hosting a Community Blood Drive Thursday, Jan. 27, at the school gymnasium from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The U.P. is experiencing a critical need for all blood types, so this is a perfect way to help save lives.

Community walk-ins are welcome and Hancock students can sign up in Mr. Smith’s or Ms. Murphy’s room. The minimum age requirement is 17 years old or 16 with parental permission. Consent forms are located at the school. Other requirements include weighing at least 110 pounds and adequate iron numbers, which will be checked before donating.

Students who donate will earn their Red Cord for graduation.
