First photo: Blood Bank of Hawaii Young Street Donor Center Supervisor Amber Kozaki talks with Kahului’s Nolan Tan as he donates blood Tuesday afternoon during the blood drive at the J. Walter Cameron Center in Wailuku. Tan said he has given more than a gallon of blood since he started donating. A total of 434 Maui donors came in for an appointment and registered to donate on site, including 150 on Sunday, 152 on Monday and 132 on Tuesday, according to the public relations firm assisting the blood bank. Two donors attempted to give COVID-19 convalescent plasma, but they were both deferred. It was the first time the blood bank had come to Maui since February.

I just want to pay it forward, save a life. Somebody saved mine.”
