Blood Donors Still Needed to Help with Summer Shortage

Never given blood or haven’t donated recently? We need your help!

The San Diego Blood Bank is asking donors to schedule an appointment to donate blood as soon as possible in order to ensure supply is on hand for local patients as summer approaches.   

Summer is always a challenging time for blood centers to ensure an adequate blood supply due to donors taking vacations and schools being out of session. Despite the season, the need for blood remains constant and patients continue to depend on the generosity of blood donors to meet that need.

We’ve also partnered with Just My Ticket on Select blood drives now through June 18, where donors receive one free ticket to the San Diego County Fair when they sign up for the Just My Ticket e-newsletter, where they can learn about fun events and happenings around San Diego.

Thanks to YOU for helping to save lives of hospital patients in our community this summer.
