Important information regarding sending blood donations to Las Vegas

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by Sunday’s shooting in Las Vegas.

The San Diego Blood Bank is part of a national network of local blood banks. In times like this, they monitor supply across the country to make sure the blood supply gets to where it is needed. Currently, Las Vegas is not requesting blood be sent. We are being asked to stand ready to send blood to Las Vegas if called upon.

If you are able to come and donate, the blood may be used to help someone in need locally. And we will be prepared to support Las Vegas if called upon. Your donation can save up to three lives. The San Diego Blood Bank cannot do what it does without people like you who step up in times of need.

Make an appointment to donate blood or call 1-800-4MY-SDBB (1-800-469-7322).

Consider a Financial Gift

It takes financial gifts to complete the mission of saving lives. As a non-profit, the San Diego Blood Bank relies on financial donors to help subsidize the costs for supplies and transportation to get the blood to patients in need. Your financial support ensures that the San Diego Blood Bank has a healthy blood supply available for our community and for our country. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution here or send a check payable to San Diego Blood Bank to:
SDBB Foundation Office, 3636 Gateway Center Avenue, Suite 100, San Diego, CA 92102
