ENCINITAS — San Diego County Credit Union hosts a San Diego Blood Bank drive on Thursday, July 6, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at its Encinitas branch, in addition to Murrieta, Santee and its Operations Center in San Diego. Just one pint of blood can save up to three lives, and the San Diego Blood Bank must collect more than 350 units of blood per day to meet the needs of local patients. There is currently an extremely low inventory of blood. SDCCU has supported the San Diego Blood Bank for over 20 years. Blood donations are especially critical during a busy summer season, and this year has been especially challenging. Go to sdccu.com/blooddrive for more information.
