Commit to Care

Sign up to donate because you CARE

When you make a pledge to donate blood at San Diego Cares, you make the commitment to save a life. The process is easy, and the environment will be fun, festive, and high-energy. Join us in doing good for our friends, family members, and neighbors this holiday season!

Donors must be 16 years or older, 114 lbs. minimum, and in general good health.

  • 1. A bit of paperwork

    When you arrive, you’ll be asked to fill out a few simple forms. Bring your photo ID!

  • 2. Vital Check

    A nurse will take a few vitals and ask a few questions. Many of our donors love the “free mini health check-up.”

  • 3. Save a life

    The actual donation time is less than 10 minutes. You will sit on a comfortable reclining chair while our well-trained phlebotomists do all the heavy lifting.

  • 4. Relax with a treat

    Sit in our canteen for 15 minutes and enjoy a sweet treat. Donors rave about the nutter butters.

  • 5. Share your "arm badge of courage" with the world

    Inspire others to give back by snapping a photo and sharing it. #icareSD
