Minority Blood Donors Needed for Remington College 3 Lives Blood Drives Remington College-Honolulu Campus blood drives set for August 16 & 17 Remington College - Honolulu Campus is continuing its series of blood drives to recruit more minority blood donors to benefit island residents in need of blood. The next blood drive will be held on Tuesday, August 16 and Wednesday, August 17 from 6:45 am - 1:30 pm. Remington College has partnered with America's Blood Centers (ABC) and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) for a series of blood drives on all its campuses. The effort is called 3 Lives - because three lives may be saved for every one pint of blood donated. Remington College recently received ABC's National Partner of the Year Award for helping to raise awareness of the need for blood donors. So far this year, Remington College has collected more than 600 pints of blood and hopes to meets its goal of collecting 3000 pints in 2011. While the blood drives in the mainland focus on the need for African American donors, the need in Hawaii is for donors that are Jk3 negative. These donors are of Micronesian or Polynesian decent. All the blood collected will be used to help people in the local area. Remington College-Honolulu Campus is located at 1111 Bishop Street, Suite 400.
