Residents can help prevent a dangerous drop in the state's blood supply over the holidays by donating at one of a number of locations next month.

"The holidays are tough on the state's blood supply, and this year will be no exception," said Dr. Robyn Yim, Blood Bank of Hawaii president and medical director.

She said donor turnout usually is low as people get busy with holiday activities and vacation plans, but "the need for blood never stops."

Blood drives will be held as follows:

>> Dec. 2, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., University of Hawaii-Manoa School of Law

>> Dec. 7, 1 to 5 p.m., Times Super Market-Kaneohe

>> Dec. 9, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Kapiolani Community College

>> Dec. 14, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Town Center of Mililani

>> Dec. 15, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Kahala Mall
