Special Notice: COVID-19 and Need for Volunteers

San Diego Blood Bank remains open as an essential function during the 'stay-at-home' order. Volunteers are needed to help ensure a clean and welcoming environment.

We are asking that those 65 and older remain safely at home. Will you help stand in the gap as many of our current volunteers are 65 and older.

During this time, we have streamlined the volunteer sign up process. Click here to sign up to volunteer - Volunteer Application (third-party website)
