AGC Blood Drive a Huge Success During a Critical Time

The AGC Build & Serve Charitable Alliance coordinates a construction industry-wide blood drive each summer, and this year, while we are currently experiencing a pandemic, it was even more critical than ever to move forward with our Blood Drive. This year, all drives were by appointment only, and the San Diego Blood Bank took all the necessary precautions and protocols to ensure a safe environment for its donors.

Well...thanks to all the generous blood donors, and our AGC member hosts...we collected 515 pints (includes Riverside). Currently, AGC is in the #1 spot for all Blood Drives in San Diego County:
493 = AGC
468 = Sharp
360 = Padres
205 = UCSD

We could not have accomplished this without our member hosts and the hard working site coordinators:

Acme Safety & Supply Corp. - 20 pints
AGC - 28 pints
Balfour Beatty - 25 pints
Countywide Mechanical - 30 pints
Dynalectric Co. - 49 pints
Erickson-Hall (Escondido) - 63 pints
Erickson-Hall (Riverside) via LifeStream Blood Bank - 22 pints
Mack Packaging - 24 pints
Oldcastle Infrastructure - 22 pints
Sherwood Mechanical - 41 pints
Sundt Construction - 43 pints
Swinerton - 33 pints
TC Construction Co. - 79 pints
Turner Construction - 36 pints

The AGC Blood Drive helped touch the lives of over 1,500 people!

If your company is interested in hosting next year during the week of July 12, 2021, please contact Marcy Knopman, AGC staff Blood Drive Coordinator.


Thank you to our host locations and donors.

You can still donate at the San Diego Blood Bank donation centers using the code "AGCS" to have a donation count toward this blood drive.

2018 Blood Drive = 574 PINTS COLLECTED = 1,722 LIVES SAVED!

AGC's Build & Serve Charitable Alliance held its Annual 4-Day Construction Industry-wide Blood Drive throughout the County July 9-12, 2018 with an additional blood drive on July 28. The San Diego Blood Bank's supplies are usually low after the July 4th holiday, so AGC schedules its drive during this time to replenish the diminished supply.

AGC's Blood Drive is the 4th largest drive in San Diego County thanks to the construction industry's support! The total pints collected were 574 pints (179 were first time donors)....this will touch the lives of at least 1,722 people in one day. To all the donors who took the time out of their schedule to donate blood...we thank you for your gift of life!

2011 Blood Drive = 143 PINTS COLLECTED = 429 LIVES SAVED!

August 30, 2011- The AGC’s Build & Serve Committee chose as one of their charitable projects, a city-wide Blood Drive on August 30th in partnership with the San Diego Blood Bank.  Build & Serve’s tenet is to provide a venue for AGC members to “give back” to the community. AGC members gave back in a big way…they gave the gift of life! Co-Chairs Dave Carlin, Soltek Pacific, and Pam Scholefield, Scholefield Construction Law were pleased with the results. "The summer months are a critical time to hold a blood drive, and the construction industry's outpouring of support was tremendous."  The Blood Drive was held simultaneously at four locations: AGC offices (35 pints collected), Prava Construction (37 pints collected), T.B. Penick & Sons, Inc., (31 pints collected), and TC Construction Co. Inc. (37 pints collected) (Terry Cameron pictured).  The 143 pints collected represent about 40% of the daily needs at the San Diego Blood Bank.  At each site, there were Site Coordinators who organized everything for the Blood Drive at their respective locations; Chris Klemaske, T.B. Penick & Sons; Sandy Weeks, TC Construction; and Glenn Torrez, PRAVA Construction
