SDCCU Holiday Bowl Blood and Food Drive

Thursday, April 9, 2020 | SDCCU Stadium Parking Lot, Section B-2

BY APPOINTMENT ONLY 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

The SDCCU Holiday Bowl is stepping up to support our community in an area where there is a dire need.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are on the verge of a serious blood shortage for patients in the region. According to our partners at the San Diego Blood Bank, the school closures and work-from-home policies have created a slew of blood drive cancellations. This is significant as more than half of the blood supply comes from these mobile drives!

If you are able, schedule your appointment today.

Whether you can or cannot donate, please do forward this link out to your family, friends and colleagues and post it on your social media platforms.

A Priority on Safety

With existing social distancing mandates you might wonder if this is an allowable event.

Supervisor Greg Cox said recently: “Blood drives and blood collection activities do not fall under the countywide ban on gatherings. We encourage organizations hosting blood drives to keep their commitments if possible. Blood donation centers use appropriate infection control mechanisms intended to assure the safety of the products, donors and staff. As a longtime, regular blood donor, I know that having a safe blood supply for our community is a critical public health issue for our region and I urge everyone to give the gift of life.”

As operators of the blood drive, the San Diego Blood Bank shall ensure it will be conducted with a priority on safety for all who participate.
