Students from KCC’s Health Promotion Team have partnered with the Blood Bank of Hawai‘i for a blood drive today on campus. The Blood Bank of Hawai‘i has provided one of their “bloodmobiles,” located behind the Ohia Cafeteria, for the drive from 8:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

According to student volunteer Elise McKnight-Kim, the Health Promotion Team was able to sign up most of the available time slots, despite some last-minute cancellations.

The need for blood is constant. Blood Bank of Hawai‘i has “fallen dangerously low of its supply of universal blood type O,” according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser in July.

Another blood drive, sponsored by the Health Promotion Team and Blood Bank of Hawaii, will take place on November 21. For more information on how to donate, contact KCC student Kim Gill at
