Partnering with the Blood Bank of Hawaii, our Honolulu Campus saw a wonderful turnout of blood donors during their 3 Lives Blood Drive, held at the Campus on Thursday, May 15, 2014, from 7:45 am to 12:45 pm.

Honolulu Campus President Louis LaMair not only endorsed the Campus’s blood drive efforts but also was one of the first people to sign up as a donor.

A past blood recipient himself, Mr. LaMair is fully aware of the benefits of receiving this life-saving gift. His blood type categorizes him as a “universal donor,” because his blood can be used in extreme emergencies, when there is little time to match specific blood types.

Executive Assistant Alison Romero organized the drive on Campus. Ms. Romero initially set a goal of 10 donors, but the donor count exceeded 25.

She said, “It’s incredibly inspiring to find that if you get the word out, people are so willing to help their neighbors.” Administrative staff members Mary Lee and Ling Chong were in charge of scheduling donors and distributing T-shirts as a token of donor support.

Instructor John Scott, who is a regular donor, said, “It’s the easiest thing I’ve ever done.”

Student Milo Maltby, who was a first-time donor, was very happy to do his part. He said, “I have the international blood type, O Negative, helping to keep all alive.”

Mr. LaMair said, “We are thankful to all of our enthusiastic donors. They were part of a great effort to help save lives and make a significant difference in our community.”
