HDFC Bank is organising a nationwide Blood Donation Campaign on December 10, 2010. Donors in 350 Indian cities will be able to donate blood at over 475 designated centres from 0900 hrs to 1700 hrs in what is one of the nation’s biggest single-day blood donation campaigns where individual donors, including many Bank utives, are expected to donate blood. The Bank has tied up with major hospitals and blood banks across these centers for technical assistance. This is HDFC Bank’s fourth such annual blood donation camp. The Bank started this initiative in 2007 when over 4000 volunteers came forward for a national cause. Since then the camp has grown in size and stature. In the very first year over 4000 units of blood was collected. Progressively in 2008 over 9000 units and in 2009 over 13,500 units were collected.
