Special Promotion» Grateful Life Tour
Monday, July 18 through Saturday, July 30
The Grateful Life Tour is in town! It’s year 12 of our Giving Is Groovy tie-dye T-shirt giveaway. This year, all our centers and community mobile drives will have rainbow swirls of thanks to share for this two-week promotion.
Ongoing Promotion» Sports Basement Coupons Are Back!
All Center Locations
Sports Basement is a long-time supporter of Stanford Blood Center. We appreciate their bringing us another batch of these popular coupons for our donors! These are available at our center locations only.
Coupons valid at all six Bay Area Sports Basement locations - Berkeley, Campbell, San Francisco Bryant St., San Francisco Old Mason St., Sunnyvale and Walnut Creek.
Special Summer Promotion» MORE Monday Movie Madness
Every Monday, 6/27 through 9/5. Due to Monday holiday closures, Tuesdays 7/5 and 9/6 for those weeks only.
This summer, we are expanding our Monday movie tickets to all centers, all donation types, all day! Monday mornings continue to be important to the community blood supply; hospitals order the units they will need at the beginning of each week. During high school season, many of these needed blood products are collected at high school blood drives. During the summer, however, we lose these precious opportunities to collect the blood needed for local patients. To thank you for coming in when we need you most, we'll give you one Cinemark Theatres movie ticket. Our usual Monday movie ticket promotion will be only extended for the summer months, so be sure to make your appointments before seats fill up!
Ongoing Promotion» Hobee's Coupons
Our friends at Hobee's are offering donors generous thank you gifts! When you next visit one of our Centers, just ask for the coupons at registration - Hobee's complimentary dinner entree with purchase of another dinner entree.
Always available in our centers: Free SBC Note Cards for Friends and Family
You can always find SBC note cards in our canteens for your use. These are special note cards to send to a patient or someone else who would appreciate knowing you’ve done a good deed with them in mind.
