Palo Alto Workers Roll Up Their Sleeves

Blood donations were a snap earlier this week as the mobile donation bus never made it out of Palo Alto.


Workers for the various companies in the AOL building in Palo Alto donated pints of blood  to Stanford Blood Center Tuesday when  the center’s  mobile donation bus spent the day parked out back.

An RN who wore a name tag but was shy about using her name in this story said that there was a steady flow of donors. “Today’s been great. A lot of people want to give back, especially at this time of year when people make resolutions to live better lives.” She points out that each pint of donated blood can save two lives.

Stanford Blood Center was started by the School of Medicine in 1978 to meet the increasing demand for blood at Stanford Hospital and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, and to perform research and teaching. Since then, the scope of its mission has greatly expanded. The Stanford Blood Center now supplies:

Stanford Hospital and Clinics
Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford
El Camino Hospital, Mountain View
El Camino Hospital, Los Gatos
O'Connor Hospital, San Jose
Palo Alto V.A. Hospital
Livermore V.A. Hospital
Biotech and academia researchers
Clinical laboratories
