Blood bank drives canceled

Due to the continuing public health risk caused by COVID-19 and the special state and county government mandates, Blood Bank of Hawai‘i will continue its modified collections plan. All May neighbor island blood drives are canceled, along with all drives on O‘ahu that are hosted by LifeSaver Clubs organizations.

“Although collections are currently limited to O‘ahu, the commitment remains as strong as ever to send blood supplies needed to every neighbor island,” said Todd Lewis, Blood Bank of Hawaii chief operating officer. “We hope our donors and volunteers are staying healthy until we can see them again in person.”

Blood Bank of Hawai‘i looks forward to returning to each of the neighbor islands as it becomes safe to do so, and will continue to provide updates, he said.
