Come out and bleed for those in need! For eligibility information click here (http://bloodcenter.stanford.edu/donate/eligibility-deferral.php).
We are donating at the Stanford Blood Center (http://bloodcenter.stanford.edu/) of Mountain View (http://bloodcenter.stanford.edu/bcinfo/maps-mv.html), located next to El Camino Hospital. The building will be on your left, opposite St. Francis High School playing fields.
—–IMPORTANT APPOINTMENT INFO—–
To inform the Stanford Blood Center, when you RSVP to this event, you will be asked to provide your:
• Email Address
• Full Name
• Donor Member ID number OR Birth Date
This information only needed the first time you sign up for blood donation with ACSJ. If for any reason you can’t completely provide the required information upon RSVPing, Noreen will send you a private message and we can sort it out. (Please make sure your Meetup settings allow messaging so she can contact you.) If you would be more comfortable emailing Stanford yourself, Noreen can provide contact information. Stanford does accept walk-ins, but appointments make it better for everyone.
If you never donated with Stanford before or don’t have your Member ID number, then your birth date is what they will use to register your appointment, along with your name and email address. Please also include your guests’ info if you are bringing someone. After Noreen sends your RSVP info over to Stanford Blood Center, they will email you your “Blood Drive Appointment Confirmation” with exact appointment time via [masked]. Please do not reserve your own appointment via their website, as we have a block of reserved appointments to fill. RSVPs made less than 24 hours before the event will likely be considered walk-ins, without an appointment.
Please RSVP early to secure your appointment. The attendee limit for this Meetup event will reflect the amount of afternoon time slots left open, including our reserved slots. You are welcome to arrive as a walk-in, but it is strongly preferred that you RSVP with the group and obtain an actual appointment well before the event date. This is to ensure our good standing reputation and allows SBC to gauge our ability to host our own mobile blood drive events.
To cancel your appointment, you can either cancel with the link provided in your confirmation email or call[masked]-7831. Also please leave a comment here and change your RSVP status on this event.
—–END OF APPOINTMENT INFO—–
