SDCCU is hosting a blood drive on January 6, 2016 at six locations in San Diego. Due to the busy holiday season, hospital shelves are almost empty, affecting thousands of patients. We need your help – lives depend on it!

“SDCCU is pleased to help make a real difference in the lives of people who need blood. With crucially low levels of blood supply in our county, donations are incredibly important and we encourage the entire community to register to donate blood today,” said Teresa Halleck, SDCCU president and CEO.
SDCCU is dedicated to bringing its community together to help save lives, and has done so by supporting the San Diego Blood Bank for nearly 20 years. SDCCU was the presenting sponsor at the 37th annual Chargers Blood Drive, held at the Town and Country Resort Hotel & Convention Center in Mission Valley on November 24. This was the credit union’s 17th year as presenting sponsor of the drive.
More than 4,000 San Diegans, over 900 of them registered donors, turned out at the daylong community-wide blood drive, which is considered one of the largest and longest-running single-day blood drives in the nation. San Diego Blood Bank officials said blood collected at this year’s Chargers Drive XXXVII will help hospital patients in the San Diego community. Blood donations are especially critical at this time of year because donations often decrease during the holidays while the need for more blood often increases.
