Mobile Bloodbank Gifted

Date Published:

The Community Blood Bank of Sioux Falls, a nonprofit cooperative program of Avera and Sanford Health, has donated another of its former bloodmobiles to the Los Cabos Children's Foundation.

This is the second bloodmobile the Community Blood Bank has donated to the Los Cabos organization, the first taking place in 2008.

The donation of this 2002 era bloodmobile was made possible when the blood bank recently procured a new bloodmobile vehicle.

Tom Walsh, owner of local Burger King restaurants, is founder of the Los Cabos Children's Foundation. “Through the genuine caring and exceptional generosity of our partners and supporting organizations, children’s lives have been saved and improved since we started the Foundation in 2002,” Walsh said.

Thanks to numerous collaborators including Avera, the Los Cabos Children's Foundation has established pediatric cardiac and oncology programs at La Paz.

This bloodmobile will help ensure that the local blood bank is well supplied with blood, collected from donors at universities, schools and resorts. Due to the geography and transportation of the region, people cannot travel to give blood, and it's difficult to bring blood in from other locations.

“This donation is another example of Sanford Health’s support of the important mission of the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation,” said Monica Huber, Vice President for Sanford Health. “Similar to Sanford Health, the Los Cabos Foundation believes health care should be delivered as close to home as possible. There are tremendous health care deficiencies in the Baja region with half of the growing population made up of children, and local health care services are not growing to meet the need.”
