Stanford Blood Center seeks eligible blood donors

Now more than ever, patients in our community are relying on the generosity of healthy, eligible blood donors. At Stanford Blood Center (SBC), we need to collect approximately 200 units (pints) of blood per day to support all the children and adults in our community who depend on life-saving blood products for treatment. If you are able, please consider donating to help us continue to meet the needs of local patients!
