SDCCU Partnered with the San Diego Blood Bank to Help Save Lives
Blood drive held at seven SDCCU locations helped to save over 258 lives
SAN DIEGO, Calif., (June 7, 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 blood drive at seven SDCCU locations, six in San Diego County and one in Riverside County collecting 86 pints of much-needed blood, which will help save the lives of over 258 people.
The blood drive helped boost blood inventory during a challenging time of the year for the San Diego Blood Bank, as many of their normally scheduled drives have been paused 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 heading into summer, 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 as we head into summer,” said Teresa Campbell, SDCCU president and CEO. “Thank you to all those who came out, and donated, as your support makes a real difference in 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
