Calexico, California -  With the nation’s blood supply facing significantly low levels, Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District, an Affiliate of the Scripps Health Network would like to bring to light the recent CALEXICO UNIDOS BLOOD DRIVE efforts that are scheduled for August 17th at the Calexico Community Center. Joining them for tomorrow’s kick-off will be Blood Drive partners the San Diego Blood Bank, Entravision, Calexico Chamber of Commerce, Lamar, Mi Calexico and the City of Calexico.

“The summer blood drives can be difficult here and can create a major challenge as supplies are low during these months due to the excessive heat—but as a whole we must continue to be vigilant and work together as ONE community. As you know blood transfusions are vital for supportive care and are critical to saving lives,” stated Larry Lewis, CEO of Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District.
