Give a pint, save a life; tattoos welcome

Tattoo armOne pint of blood can help save three lives! If you are interested in donating blood, mark your calendars for March 17-18.

Sponsored by the Service-Learning Center, the drive will be held in Akoakoa 101. Blood Bank of Hawaii staff will be assisting donors from 8 a.m to 3 p.m.

The volunteers will be asking students, faculty and staff in classes, the library and all over WCC to help the college meet its goal of 64 pints of blood each day.

The Blood Drive is also allowing donors with tattoos, piercings and medications to give blood as long as they meet the criteria, which can be viewed on the Blood Bank of Hawaii website, at
