We’re celebrating Blood Collectors Week from September 8-14, 2013. Blood centers across the nation take this time to thank blood collection staff for their efforts to ensure blood is available when needed, and to highlight the importance of this profession.

Stanford Blood Center will provide some special treats for our blood collection staff this week, but encouraging words from our donors always mean the most to them. Please show your support by making an appointment to donate blood this week, and be sure to tell your blood collectors how much you appreciate their efforts. For more information or to schedule a donation, please call 650-723-7831 or visit to make an appointment.
