Blood Bank seeks donors during holiday season


The Blood Bank of Hawaii is seeking donors during the holiday season, when the number of donors typically drop.

President and Chief Executive Officer Kim-Ahn Nguyen said the number of donors usually dwindle during the season because of busy family schedules.

About 200 donors are needed daily to maintain a sufficient supply to help those in need of blood transfusions. One of seven people entering a hospital will need blood, she added.

Donors must be in good health, 18 or older, weigh at least 110 pounds and have a valid photo identification. An individual can donate blood up to six times a year.

To schedule an appointment, go to the Blood Bank of Hawaii’s website at or call 848-4770.
