WHAT: Someone needs blood every two seconds, and every time you donate, you give someone another chance and life, laughter and memories. What could be better than that? Well this summer, every blood donation will bring an extra gift to a Special Olympics Hawaii athlete. Special Olympics Hawaii has partnered with Blood Bank of Hawaii, to hold two blood drives at the Special Olympics Hawaii Sports and Wellness Center (91-610 Maunakapu St. Ewa Beach, HI 96706) on June 6, 2021 and August 7, 2021, both from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.
