Together, with volunteer blood donors, we help save the lives of patients in hospitals from Los Angeles to the International Border in San Diego. Each year we provide over 150,000 lifesaving units of blood, helping to ensure the health of our region. The Blood Bank is dedicated to serving the community with safe, quality blood products that are available to patients of all ages, socio-economic statuses, and ethnic backgrounds. Together, we connect patients to life.

We are grateful to foundation, corporate, and individual financial supporters who have helped fuel San Diego Blood Bank’s expansion north to Los Angeles and Orange counties, propelling our mission further.

You never know if you or someone you know will need a blood transfusion. 

We make it our priority to keep blood on the shelves to save a life the very second it's needed. In that way, we are in the business of keeping families together, healthy and thriving. It is our honor to serve.  

Please share in our excitement and invite friends and family in Orange and Los Angeles Counties to learn about our new location. There are many ways to support your community blood bank and one big way is to help us spread the word.  

You can also support our expansion in Southern California by volunteering at the Irvine location or our blood drives, joining our Visionary Circle monthly financial giving program, and by donating blood at any Southern California or San Diego Blood Bank location.

Every blood donation helps southern California hospital patients fight cancers, treat anemias, survive traumas and surgeries, and helps advance medical research.


To donate blood, you must be at least 17 years old, weigh a minimum of 114 pounds, and be in general good health.
