Yes, you do save lives!
Since 1948, BloodSource has been the lifeblood of the communities we serve. We are only able to provide patients a safe and plentiful supply of blood and blood components: red blood cells, platelets, plasma, and other critical components coming from valued volunteer blood donors like YOU. BloodSource blood donors are passionate about the connection between their time in the donation chair and the lives they touch.
Blood helps save the lives of accident and burn patients, premature infants, heart surgery patients, organ transplant recipients and individuals fighting cancer, forms of leukemia, and many other disorders. The need for blood continues to rise, and yet fewer than 4 out of every 10 people in the U.S. are eligible to donate blood. And less than 1 in 10 actually donate. Together, we can do better.
Whether you're a new or a seasoned whole blood donor, choose automated donation to help patients with different needs, want to host a blood drive in the community or at one of our donor centers, have registered as a marrow donor with Be the Match™, graciously volunteer your time and talents, or simply inspire others to support the cause, you embody the spirit of generosity that saves lives every day.
As the leading regional blood bank in Northern and Central California, we meet the needs of over 40 hospitals. We also proudly support the network of blood centers and hospitals throughout the U.S. and at times around the world to "give what is needed today."
Learn how you can make a lifesaving difference and support blood donation today!
