Give Good

Each year during our critical winter season (when blood donations drop due to sickness and holiday travel), SBC partners with another local organization with a charitable mission as part of our Give Good initiative. The goal of Give Good is to spread awareness about blood donation so we can continue to serve our local patients during this time, while also supporting a community organization with a good cause.

Thank you to everyone who came out to support our annual Give Good campaign! This year, for the entire month of January, we partnered with Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV), which has been connecting people and pets in the Silicon Valley for over 80 years.

One Donation Can Save Patients and Pets

In addition to providing lifesaving blood products for local patients, your generosity helped pets in need in our community. We are excited to announce that 3,395 generous donors from across the Bay Area donated blood to support the cause!

  • For every person that came in to donate blood, SBC made a financial contribution to Humane Society Silicon Valley.
  • HSSV used these funds to provide vaccinations and other medical care to shelter animals.
