Host A Blood Drive

Host a Blood Drive and Save Lives in Our Community

Hosting a blood drive is one of the most impactful ways to help families in Southern California.

Did you know?

  • Giving blood a single time can save up to three lives.
  • Blood still can’t be manufactured—it must be given by a human.
  • SDBB serves nearly 50 hospitals in Southern California, including trauma centers and neonatal intensive care units.

We are here to support you every step of the way to make your blood drive a success. From the day you say ‘yes,’ we’ll be working with you to make this a great experience for you and your donors.

“Hosting blood drives is a way for my family to give back the gift that we were given, blood that helped save my son's life. I am thankful to have a part in maintaining an adequate supply of blood. My wife and I together decided we have the ability to use our business to host blood drives, to help collect blood needed by hospitals for anyone in need of it, and also to donate on a regular basis.” David Garmo, owner of Big O Tires & Service in Pacific Beach


"Prior to my son Luke getting leukemia, I am not sure that giving blood was on my radar. I didn’t know how extremely important it is. Now that I have become part of this supportive cancer community, I see the effect that just one donation has on a kid or human being. Just one donation of blood can keep a child on the pathway to recovery, even saving their life..." Jason, father of Luke
