To support the needs of patients during the critical winter holiday season, we’ve created the Give Good campaign. Each year, we partner with community organizations to double the impact of each blood donation. Patients and their families will benefit from blood donations, and others in our community that need support will get help, too. In this way, each donation goes even further. This winter 2016, Stanford Blood Center is partnering with Bay Area Cancer Connections for the 4th Annual Give Good Campaign.
One Donation: Double the Impact
In addition to providing lifesaving blood products, you are directly benefiting cancer patients in treatment with a gift that feels like a warm embrace. For each presenting donor that participates during the Give Good campaign, SBC will make a donation to Bay Area Cancer Connections. Donations will go toward providing comfort totes to clients, which include items like relaxing lavender eye masks to relieve stress, ginger chews and tea to help with nausea, and soft, fuzzy socks to provide comfort during treatments. The winter 2016 Give Good campaign runs Monday, December 12 – Saturday, December 24, 2016.
