All San Antonio and New Braunfels Donor Rooms

Help patients like Dev

Join the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center for a blood drive honoring Dev, an 8-year-old who has battled childhood acute leukemia.  He has received hundreds of blood products that has given him a chance to continue fighting. He is currently ventilator dependent and hopes to encourage people to donate blood.  Your blood donations are administered during chemotherapy to help patients like Dev replenish crucial blood cells lost during treatment. 

Donate in honor of Dev from Thursday, February 14-Sunday, February 17 at any San Antonio or New Braunfels South Texas Blood & Tissue Center donor room.

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. 
  • 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
