Cushman Foundation Presents Lead Gift for New San Diego Blood Bank Bloodmobile

Cushman Foundation Members Presented San Diego Blood Bank with a Check for $50,000 in support of SDBB's Mobile Blood Collection Program

The Cushman Foundation presented a check for $50,000 to San Diego Blood Bank which serves as the lead gift for SDBB’s new bloodmobile campaign. 
This $50,000 gift is the Cushman Foundation’s largest contribution in its 25-year giving history to San Diego Blood Bank. The lead gift kicks off SDBB’s fundraising for the Campaign for Life to raise $380,000.00 for a new bloodmobile that will help to save thousands of lives over its lifespan.

SDBB hosts over 1,600 mobile blood drives annually in partnership with the community. Bloodmobiles make it possible for SDBB to meet blood donors in their communities, who in turn, help build our robust blood supply for patients in need. Bloodmobiles make it possible for blood donors who have time constraints or lack of transportation to equally participate in giving blood to save lives. 

Thank you to the Cushman Foundation for your investment in community health and your long-time partnership.
