In addition to the warm and fuzzy feeling you get from helping others, you can get cool gifts as a thank-you when you donate blood with us! Check out our current promotions below. If you’d like to learn more about blood donation, start here:


We’re giving thanks… and giving away Sharks tickets!

This Thanksgiving week, November 25 – 30*, each person who comes in to donate at any of our three centers will be entered to win one of 25 pairs of tickets to the December 12 San Jose Sharks v. New York Rangers game.

Winners will be randomly chosen daily at all three centers and announced on our social media channels the following day (so be sure to follow us!). On Friday, November 29, donors will also be entered to win a pair of “benchwarmer” fan experiences, where the winner and one guest will get to sit on the Sharks bench while the players warm up before the game.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at SBC, and good luck!


*We will be closed Thursday, November 28 for Thanksgiving
