COVID-19 Response & Recovery Effort

Given the impact of COVID-19, The Blood & Tissue Center Foundation has re-evaluated fundraising activities for 2020 and has postponed the Red and White Ball until the fall of 2021.

But even during these uncertain times, patients in our community continue to rely on blood and the other lifesaving services provided by the BioBridge Global family of nonprofits: the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center, QualTex Laboratories and GenCure.

Our mission of “saving and enhancing lives through the healing power of human cells and tissue” is more important than ever during this pandemic. STBTC is part of an FDA program to provide plasma from recovered COVID-19 patients, which carries immune-boosting antibodies to the virus, for patients fighting for their lives against infection.

Donations will assist with the extra costs associated with the promotion and operational expenses including supplies needed to host blood drives at large scale venues allowing for proper social distancing. Your donations will also assist with efforts to create, recruit donors for and expand the convalescent plasma program.
