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.
Blood drive continues
"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.
