Give life. Donate blood

The mobile unit of the San Diego Blood Bank will be at St. James Sunday, February 16, from 7:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. to receive blood donations.

The need for blood remains great throughout the county and state, and we urge your participation. Bringing it close to home, we have had several parishioners whose lives have been saved by blood transfusions, and over the years we’ve been doing it, your donations have saved over 9,000 lives.

Remember: people are the only source – there is no substitute. And only 5% of Americans ever donate blood.

If you’ve never given blood before, now is the time to start. Let’s give them a big turnout!

For your convenience, you may make an appointment either by:
- visiting the Blood Bank website at or
- calling the Blood Bank 1-800-4MY-SDBB (1-800-469-7322) or
- calling Bob or Cory Graves at 858-755-8990 or
- emailing Bob at

Appointments are not required, but are advisable, especially right after Mass lets out.
The first time you donate blood each year, you automatically create a Blood Assurance Program for your own family. Thereafter, you may donate a credit to anyone you choose. It may be given to the Parish, or to any other group, or to a person of your choosing who has an immediate need for blood.

Blood donations credited to the Parish are available to any parishioner, or to a member of the immediate family of a parishioner, at any time; whenever blood is needed, contact the rectory office. The Blood Bank will make available as many units of blood as are needed, at absolutely no charge to the patient.

Thank you very much.
