SD Blood Bank Asking Community to Donate Before Anticipated Shortage


During the first two weeks of July, and on the Fourth of July holiday, we are asking those who have never given blood, and those who haven’t given blood recently, to schedule an appointment—donate blood now to ensure supply is on hand for local families in need. Summer is always a challenging time for blood centers to ensure an adequate blood supply. Many regular donors take vacations and schools are out of session. Despite the season, the need for blood remains constant and those in need continue to depend on the generosity of blood donors.

This Fourth of July, SDBB’s Gateway Center (near downtown) and North County Donor Center (Escondido) will be open from 8 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Donors can also donate at any SDBB mobile drive.
