San Diego County Credit Union will hold blood drives at three of its locations Wednesday.

The blood drives come after a busy holiday season that has left hospitals in the region in need of blood, according to the credit union.

The blood drives will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  at the Encinitas branch, 591 N. El Camino Real, Encinitas; the Operations Center, 6545 Sequence Drive, San Diego; and the Santee branch, 286 Town Center Parkway, Santee.

Blood donations often decrease around the holidays, though the need for blood increases, according to SDCCU.
