Partnering with Stanford Blood Center is a great way for organizations to give back to the community and help save lives.
The success of our daily work depends on the generosity of blood donors. It also depends on generous contributions from community partners through donations such as products or services that enhance the donation experience, advertising support, underwriting of special events or promotions and financial support.
We thank our sponsors for their generous and on-going support of our blood drives and events.
Erik’s DeliCafé is a local business with a heart of gold.

Erik’s love for their community extends beyond their doors, particularly in their charitable giving program. In the past, Erik’s has helped raise funds and awareness for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Second Harvest Food Bank, Valley Churches United Missions, and more. In partnering with Stanford Blood Center, Erik’s DeliCafé is once again showing its commitment to the community it serves with a healthy meal and a reminder of the importance of blood donation.

The San Jose Sharks have been giving hockey fans something to cheer about for over twenty years now. But did you know they give patients in local hospitals a reason to celebrate? That’s because the Sharks Foundation supports blood donation through annual blood drives. We’ve been partnering with the Sharks since 2007, collected total amount of 1708 units. Sharks fans turned out in full force in our 2013 blood to support the annual "Save a Life" blood drive at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, and some donors were lucky enough to be thanked personally by Tommy Wingels, Jason Demers, and Matt Irwin. The three players made a surprise appearance at the blood drive after morning skate.
"Both the Sharks Foundation and SBC are committed to making a positive impact in our community,” Sharks Foundation Manager Jeff Cafuir said. “Each year, more and more of our fans are willing to donate and we hope this trend continues in the future." Our last Sharks blood drive, held on January 23, 2010, brought in 338 units of blood. That’s our current record of donations at a single blood drive! We’re confident that our partnership with the Sharks Foundation will continue to be a record-breaking success.
