SDCCU partnered with the San Diego Blood Bank to help save lives
New Year’s blood drive held at eight SDCCU locations helped to save over 312 lives
SAN DIEGO, CALIF (January 11, 2022) — San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), one of Southern California’s largest locally-owned financial institutions, partnered with the San Diego Blood Bank to host a New Year’s blood drive at eight SDCCU locations, six in San Diego County, one in Riverside County and one in Orange County collecting 104 pints of much-needed blood, which will help save the lives of over 312 people.
The blood drive was held during the most challenging time of the year for the San Diego Blood Bank, as many of their normally scheduled drives have not taken place due to businesses and community partners being unable to host because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Blood donations are especially critical at this time of year after a busy winter season, and the reduced number of drives has put additional strain on the already stretched on-hand supply.
“SDCCU was happy to once again partner with the San Diego Blood Bank to host a blood drive to kick off the New Year,” said Teresa Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO. “We are grateful to all those who came out, and donated, as your support truly impacts the lives of those in our community.”
More than 30 hospitals rely on the San Diego Blood Bank every day. With a shelf life of just 42 days, the constant need for new donations is critical. To learn more about the San Diego Blood Bank or for more information on the blood drive, visit www.sandiegobloodbank.org.
