SD blood bank donates bloodmobile to children’s nonprofit

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A southeast South Dakota blood bank has donated a mobile blood donation center to a nonprofit helping children in Mexico.

The Community Blood Bank of Sioux Falls has given its former bloodmobile to the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation. The organization provides cardiac and oncology care for children of the Los Cabos area.

Tom Walsh is the owner of local Burger King restaurants and founder of the organization. Walsh says children’s lives have been saved and improved thanks to the “genuine caring and exceptional generosity of our partners and supporting organizations.”

This is the second bloodmobile the Community Blood Bank has donated to the organization. It’ll be used to ensure that the local blood bank is well supplied with blood, collected from donors at universities, schools and resorts.
