Click here for the Hoxworth Blood Center - Schedule page or phone (513) 451-0910.


Did you know that more than 13 percent of our total yearly blood collections come from high school blood drives? In fact, during the last school year, there were approximately 12,000 donors at high school blood drives. Since one donation can save up to three lives, about 36,000 tri-state patients were helped by students in just one year.


When donating, students should give Hoxworth the code A412 for Cooper or if they forget the code BCS is for Boone County Schools.


Please also email Ms. Hall in order that she can keep an accurate record. Students can earn 1 service hour.

As part of our graduation requirement, each student needs to have completed 20 hours of community service hours prior to graduating.


It is recommended that students perform 5 hours of community service for each school year they are enrolled at Cooper, instead of accumulating the hours within one school year. Deadline for Seniors to submit hours is February 15th of each year. Students are required to fill out a community service hours form and return the completed form to the Library Media Center.


Students can view service hours through their Infinite Campus Portal and are encouraged to keep track of their own hours.
