 Join us for our 4th Annual Ava’s Blood Drive
on September 28th!

“What can we do to help?” had been a question commonly asked throughout Ava’s battle against ALL (Acute Lymphocytic Leukamia). Blood transfusions have saved Ava’s life on a number of occasions and The Khalipas wanted to do everything they could to give back to others in need. Jason annually hosts the largest Blood Drive not associated with a professional sports team in the Silicon Valley. This year, marks the 4th Annual Ava's Blood Drive in September.

WHERE: NCFIT MOUNTAIN VIEW
WHEN: SEPTEMBER 28TH

Unable to donate blood?
Donate a toy to a kid in need!

Donations of new toys, or gift certificates for the purchase of toys and supplies, go a long way in helping provide children and teens joy.

 

helpful tips

1. Find our most needed items on our Wish List.
2. Note that our greatest need is for gift cards, which allow Child Life Specialists to purchase custom gifts for patients.
3. Care packages and activity kits are a creative way to allow patients to enjoy just being kids.
4. Consider gifts for all ages. Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford cares for newborns, toddlers, adolescents, and expectant mothers.

donation guidelines

1. For infection control reasons, all items must be brand new with tags and/or in original packaging.
2. Toys should not be gift-wrapped.
3. To protect the privacy of our patients and to control the spread of infection, we do not have opportunities for donors to personally distribute donations to patients and families.
4. Homemade food items or unwrapped candy cannot be accepted. The Packard Pantry accepts select food donations for our families in need.
5. We cannot accept used items, toy weapons, nor handmade cards or letters for patients.
