Blood Drive
Various Dates Throughout the Year

Your Help is Needed During the Current National Blood Crisis
The Red Cross is experiencing the worst blood shortage in over a decade. The dangerously low blood supply levels have forced some hospitals to defer patients from major surgery, including organ transplants. Your donation is desperately needed.
We're asking you to participate in giving the gift of life. The San Diego Blood Mobile will be set up in our parking lot, fully equipped, and ready to take your donation.
