Come get a behind-the-scenes look at LifeStream Blood Bank’s donor center and laboratory! You’ll learn how blood donations get from LifeStream to hospital patients. We conduct tours for large and small groups, business professionals, community organizations, college and high school students and other interested individuals.

Testimonials

Check out what other who’ve toured our facility have to say:

“My experience touring the LifeSteam facility in San Bernardino was eye opening. The most shocking part to myself is the fact that there is such a dire need for donations and that those always needs to be in preparation for tragedy, not after something has already happened. The process to collect and separate the blood; and treat and prepare for distribution was fascinating. I would highly recommend anyone, even a frequent donor, to take the time and see the behind-the-scenes tour of the facility to gain a better grasp into all aspects of the process to truly understand and value the work that these wonderful people put into saving lives!” — Matthew J., Ontario

“Thank you for allowing us to tour your facility. It really opened my eyes to the current shortage and has motivated me to donate in the future.” — Mike N., San Bernardino

“Thank you for a very informing tour. I learned so much and have been inspired to become a blood donor myself.” — Terina W., San Bernardino
