Blood Drive Coordinators

Karen’s Corner

Karen HendrykWelcome to our BDC page! We hope that you’ll find this page useful. Our goal is to provide information that will support you in your role as a Blood Drive Coordinator. Some topics covered on this page include donor eligibility information, donor promotions, our Mobile Spotlight (where we share a blood drive story from the previous month), and a list of our previous month’s drives.

October was a busy month at SBC, as we are officially back in high school blood drive season! During the school year, about 20% of of our blood collection comes from students at high schools. These drives are very special, as most students are donating blood for the first time. SBC strives to educate these first time donors about the constant need for blood and the importance of becoming a life-long blood donor. Wherever these students’ paths may take them, we encourage them to seek out a local blood center and donate when they can.

In October, we also met many donors who came to donate because of the tragedy in Las Vegas. All through the month, people contacted us wanting to host blood drives or donate blood to honor those who were affected. It was very motivating for us in Donor Recruitment to be able to provide a way for members of our community to do something positive in the wake of such sadness.

As for 2018, we are very excited about what’s coming up. Many of our Blood Drive Coordinators who have been working with us in the past 2-3 years have been impacted by the limitations we’ve had in scheduling blood drives. With a robust hiring and training plan for our blood collection team firmly in place, our mobile drive scheduling calendar will be much more flexible in the months ahead…which means better date availability for scheduling drives! This is good timing, as Stanford Health Care and Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital are closing in on their hospital expansions, and an increase in blood transfusions is expected.

Lastly, a special thanks to every Blood Drive Coordinator, whether it be in your place of work, your school, your congregation, or your community, for partnering with Stanford Blood Center. Over half of our whole blood is collected at mobile blood drives. We would not be able to support patients in our community without you.
