BBB Pacific Southwest’s San Diego campus will be the site of a blood drive on March 20 to benefit the San Diego Blood Bank. The blood drive will take place from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The life-saving work of the San Diego Blood Bank serves hospitals in Southern California, including trauma centers and neonatal intensive care units. Amid a current blood supply shortage, healthcare officials say a single donation can help save up to three lives.
“Hosting a blood drive is one of the most impactful ways to help families in Southern California,” said San Diego Blood Bank Director of Community Relations and Media, Claudine Van Gonka. “We are extremely grateful that TerraPro Solutions, BBB Pacific Southwest’s San Diego Campus, Mulligan Funding and Appstar have joined forces to host a life-saving blood drive.”
“In keeping with our ‘be a good human’ values, TerraPro Solutions is pleased to support the indispensable work of the San Diego Blood Bank,” said Kimberlee Centera, CEO, TerraPro Solutions.
“We are guided by our mission to ethically contribute to the well-being of our community,” remarked Kryistyna Hook, director of media relations, Better Business Bureau. “We are proud to collaborate with the San Diego Blood Bank in encouraging people to donate.”
“We are grateful for the opportunity to positively impact our community by partnering with the San Diego Blood Bank to support this donation drive,” said Karen Leibowitz, CMO at Appstar.
“We value people, not only our employees and the small business owners who are our customers, but those living in our local community as well,” said Christine Daniels, vice president of marketing, Mulligan Funding. “We’re proud to support the life-saving donation drive and partner with fantastic organizations like the San Diego Blood Bank.”
