Celebrating 10 Years of Being First


“We were the first student union based donor center in the nation,” says Fernando Gironas, proudly, pictured far right. “We’re celebrating our 10th anniversary at the UCLA Blood & Platelet Center in the Ackerman Student Union.

It was exciting then, and it’s still exciting now. I’m a long-time UCLA employee and one of the supervisors here. In 10 years, we’ve had a lot of graduating classes. Now, you see some of the old alumni coming back, settling down in Los Angeles. Guess where they come to donate? One of the first places they stop by is right here. It’s wonderful to see.”
