Mayor Mitch Roth and Blood Bank of Hawaii are partnering to honor Hawai‘i Island’s milestone blood donors on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 11 a.m.
Over 60 donors are invited to Blood Bank of Hawai‘i’s Kona blood drive, where Mayor
Roth will honor Hawai‘i Island donors who’ve made at least 100 lifetime blood donations
with certificates to thank them for their dedication to safeguarding the state’s blood
“We’re continually amazed and humbled by those who give blood on a regular basis.
They donate from their hearts, and it is only through their generosity that others who
need blood may live,” said Mayor Mitch Roth.
Blood Bank of Hawai‘i’s blood drive in Kona will take place from Tuesday, Feb. 14
through Thursday, Feb. 16 at LDS Kona Hawaii Stake.
“We are thankful to our Hawaii Island donors that roll up their sleeves to donate blood.
Their incredible generosity has helped to save countless lives of people throughout the
state,” said Fred McFadden, director of donor services at Blood Bank of Hawaii. “We
hope this group of donors can inspire other Hawaii Island residents to help the
community by donating blood.”
One donation takes about an hour and can save up to three lives. To make an
appointment, donors can visit or call (808) 848-4770. Follow along for updates
