The Blood Bank of Hawai‘i encourages residents to make an appointment to donate blood this Thanksgiving season. The drive begins in West Hawai‘i on Nov. 7 and in East Hawai‘i on Nov. 21.

The requirements to be a blood donor are simple:

  • Be in good health
  • Be 18 years of age or older (17 with signed Blood Bank of Hawaii parent/legal guardian consent form)
  • Weigh 110 pounds or more
  • Bring photo ID with date of birth

To schedule an appointment or for more information, call (808) 848-4770 or visit BBH.org.

You never know whose life you’ll save.
