For the seventh year in a row, Stanford Blood Center is running its ‘Give Good’ initiative, where the center makes a financial contribution to The Tech Interactive for each blood donation received in January.
The initiative, active at all donation center locations, kicks off this Saturday, January 4, at The Tech Interactive’s facility in San Jose with an onsite blood drive starting at 10 a.m. running to 3 p.m.
Harpreet Sandhu, CEO at Stanford Blood Center, said, “We are proud to team up with institutions like The Tech Interactive in their efforts to broaden the horizons of children and teens in our community by providing them with hands-on learning opportunities.”
Stanford Blood Center will also have an interactive booth with special activities at this kick off, including a free blood type testing opportunity. Donors at Saturday’s event will receive free admission to The Tech Interactive for the day, where they can check out the ‘World of Blood’ exhibit on display.
The Tech Interactive is a science and technology center in Downtown San Jose, featuring hands-on activities, experimental labs, and design experiences, with a focus on immersive STEAM education.
“Here at The Tech, we strive to motivate the next generation of innovators,” said Gretchen Walker, Vice President of Learning at The Tech Interactive.
“This generous contribution will help us inspire the leaders of tomorrow and engage children of all ages with programs that help them discover their own problem-solving power,” Walker continued.
The Tech Interactive is located at 201 South Market Street in Downtown San Jose. To make an appointment for donating blood at Saturday’s event, click here. Walk-in donations are also welcome.
