Employees Encouraged to Donate Blood


500 pints.

That’s the goal for this year’s County Blood Drive, which takes place every April. (Heart will be filled every Monday in April)

The 35th annual County Blood Drive kicks off Wed., April 3. Donating blood is safe, costs nothing and could save a life.

Bloodmobiles will be at 22 County worksites across the county throughout April. You can make an appointment, or just walk in.

If you can donate blood, do it. If for any reason you can’t roll up your sleeve, try to get a family member or friend to take your place since the blood drive is also open to the public. All blood types are needed.

The drive is one of the largest for the San Diego Blood Bank. Last year, County employees donated 441 pints of blood.

The blood drive supports the Live Well San Diego vision of healthy, safe and thriving residents and communities.
