Sponsors & Partners
The Coastal Bend Blood Center is extremely grateful for the love & support we receive each year from our amazing blood donors, outstanding sponsors & lifesaving partners.
Beginning in 2021, H-E-B South Texas partnered with the Coastal Bend Blood Center to supply over 40,000 beverages, 15,000 salty & protein snacks & 11,000 cookies for our amazing blood donors in the Coastal Bend. This sponsorship program was created to ensure all blood donors have access to appropriate beverages & snacks for the preparation, safety and recovery associated with donating blood, plasma or platelets. The Blood Center is eager to continue this partnership for (hopefully) many years to come.
Valero Bill Greehey Refineries
During the heat of COVID-19 in 2020, Valero Bill Greehey Refineries went above & beyond to help support our lifesaving mission in the Coastal Bend Community. Valero generously donated $15,000 which went towards the creation and growth of the COVID Convalescent Plasma (CCP) Program and helped the Blood Center with our commitment to meet the ever-expanding needs of patients and medical facilities in the Coastal Bend area. The Coastal Bend Blood Center was able to step up in the fight against the corona virus by initiating a program to draw plasma from people who had recovered from COVID-19. In addition to the monetary donation, Valero also donated $5,000 worth in fuel cards which were used as a donor award to help increase awareness and blood donations at various blood drives and promotions throughout the summer.
Port of Corpus Christi
Beginning in 2020, the Port of Corpus Christi partnered with the Coastal Bend Blood Center to help provide wonderful donor incentives & prizes for our large, quarterly blood drives. We are grateful for the monetary contributions the Port of Corpus Christi have donate to continue promoting saving lives in our community.
