Blood Drive

The KCC Blood Drive is scheduled for Monday, October 3, 2011 from 8:45 to 3:30 in the student lounge. At our last blood drive we collected a KCC record breaking 111 pints. That's 333 lives saved thanks to our blood drive. Once again our goal is set at 100 pints and we would love to break our last record. For that to happen, we need your help. Blood donors are needed every day in Hawaii. For every pint of blood donated, up to three lives can be saved. All blood collected at our blood drive stays in Hawaii. Want to donate but can't due to health reasons? Food and beverage donations are always welcomed.

The KCC blood drive is known by many as the best blood drive on the island because we have a great environment, friendly faces, great food, and massages. That's right, Virginia and her massage students plan on being there to offer complimentary thank you chair massages to our donors.


To schedule your appointment to donate blood, give me a call at the wellness center 245-8307.

Requirements for blood donations:
  •  You must be healthy (no illness within 3 days of donating) 
  • Must be at least 8 weeks after your last blood donation 
  • Must be 18 or older (17 with parental consent) 
  • Weigh more then 110 pounds 
  • No new tattoos or piercing within 1 year
To sign up to be a food or beverage donor, give me a call at the wellness center or send me an email and let me know what you plan on bringing. You do not need to provide enough for everyone because every little bit adds up.

Food and Beverage donations needed:
  • Cake (cupcakes) 
  • Pies 
  • Cookies 
  • Juice 
  • Crackers 
  • Baked goods 
  • Pastries
Thank you for giving the gift of life,
