“Time and time again, San Diego has answered the call when our blood supply becomes critically low,” said Kyle Kraska, sports director, NEWS 8.

“Now, COVID-19 has also presented challenges for our San Diego Food Bank as it is distributing more than twice the monthly meals to San Diegans in need. These concurrent drives will go a long way to satisfying two of our most urgent needs.”
