Your donation is a promise to a patient in these challenging times

Last month, South Texas experienced unprecedented challenges. While our neighbors searched for warmth, food and even shelter, inclement weather also caused donor room closures and canceled blood drives, resulting in 3,000 lost blood donations.

We need your help to rebuild your community’s blood supply, helping patients who were also fighting for their lives.

Answer the call by scheduling your appointment to donate. All donations are by appointment only

All presenting donors at any of our donor rooms or the following community blood drives in March will score:

All blood donations will undergo a COVID-19 antibody test from March 1-31, 2021. Results will be available online within a week after your donation. Learn more at SouthTexasBlood.org/Testing.

We’ve also partnered with incredible community leaders to offer you extra rewards and donation locations with Santikos Entertainment, Wash Tub, YMCA, and Northside ISD.

How STBTC is Keeping Donors Safe

For more than 45 years, the nonprofit South Texas Blood & Tissue Center has focused on a critical purpose: to save and improve lives.

Inspired by a group of physicians, our organization was formed to provide blood to the South Texas region – ensuring a safe and adequate blood supply through proper testing, storage and distribution to hospitals. This essential service allows front-line workers to focus on the direct care of patients, with confidence that this lifesaving resource will be there when it’s needed most.

But we didn’t stop there. Over the years, we’ve evolved as the needs of our patients and hospitals have changed, driven to save lives in as many ways as possible.

We couldn’t do this without donors like you. We understand that the gift of donation is a personal, powerful choice that has the potential to touch a life. Today, we offer many ways to make a difference that include:

Our team has also expanded its programs, partnering with leaders within the healthcare industry to develop a wide range of therapies.
