Stanford Blood Center to hold blood drive


De Anza College’s annual blood drive will take donors June 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 7:45 p.m. in the Hinson campus center.

“It just sets up a nice pattern to giving back because you can’t make blood,” said Mary Sullivan, director of heath education and wellness. 

People interested in donating will be able to sign up in three ways: make an appointment online on Stanford University’s Blood Center’s website, sign up during table hours June 4 and 5 outside Health Services in the  Hinson center, or sign up as  walk-ins in Conference Rooms A and B. 

All members of the De Anza community are welcome as long as they are at least 17 years old, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, do not have any cold or flu-like symptoms (with the exception of allergies) and have a photo ID.

Donors will be asked a number of questions before blood can be drawn to make sure they can safely donate, such as whether they have stayed in the United Kingdom for three or more months between 1980 and 1996, or have visited India, certain places in Mexico, China, Africa, Central or South America, the Caribbean or the Philippines in the past 12 months.
