Want to be a good sport this summer? Now, you can help out Special Olympics Hawaii AND do your part to help save lives!
From now until August 31, for every blood donation given to the Blood Bank of Hawaii, Special Olympics Hawaii will receive much-needed sports equipment or protective gear to provide to their athletes. Talk about a win-win opportunity!
According to the Blood Bank, a single pint of blood can save up to three lives. The organization states that 200 donors are needed daily.
While children and adults with intellectual disabilities have been disproportionately impacted by the social isolation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the plan is for these athletes to safely return to play later this year.
