ABOUT THE SOUTH TEXAS BLOOD & TISSUE CENTER

Giving blood means bridging the space between two lives. One is healthy, vibrant and generous. The other is experiencing illness, trauma and uncertainty. Making a blood donation is one of the most intimate and priceless gifts one can give and The South Texas Blood & Tissue Center (STBTC) is honored to be the bridge between those two lives.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO BEFORE GIVING BLOOD?

  • EAT - Consume an iron-rich meal before you donate. For meal tips, click here.
  • HYDRATE - Drinking 8-10 glasses of fluid 1-2 days before you give will help make veins more visible, help you feel more energized after donation and more.
  • Rest - Get a good night's sleep before you donate.
  • Avoid aspirin - If you're planning on donating platelets, avoid aspirin products or blood-thinning medications for 2 days prior to donation. 
  • Provide consent - If you're 16-years-old, we will need consent forms signed by your parents. Click here to download the forms.
  • Are you eligible? - If you have questions about your eligibility, or to ask about a specific medication, please call our eligibility specialists at (800) 292-5534, ext. 2243, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. You can also email us here
