San Diego Local Community News

Save a life and celebrate the holiday season by donating blood to help keep our community’s blood supply at safe levels through the years end. During the holidays, the local blood supply typically drops to low levels due to schools being out of session and seasonal illnesses like the flu.   

Starting today and through January 14, anyone who donates blood at a San Diego Blood Bank donor center or mobile blood drive will receive a limited-edition Winnie-the-Pooh t-shirt while supplies last. Heartfelt gratitude goes out to Custom Logos for their generous in-kind donation to the campaign. Their support not only made these unique t-shirts possible, but also exemplifies their long-standing commitment to the San Diego community. 

To be eligible to donate blood you must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be in general good health. Eligible blood donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment at or calling 619-400-8251.
