Blood Bank of Hawaiʻi.

The Blood Bank of Hawaiʻi is hosting a series of blood drives on Maui throughout February.

According to the organization, one in seven people entering the hospital in Hawaiʻi will need blood, but only about 2% actually donate. The Blood Bank of Hawaiʻi says 200 blood donations are needed every day in Hawaiʻi to maintain an adequate blood supply and fulfill needs in the state.

Because each pint of whole blood is separated into three components – platelets, plasma, and red blood cells – organization leaders say one donation can help the lives of up to three people.

Below is a list including locations, dates, and general information for this event.
