Thank you, Coachella Valley!
Your generosity of the heart this July during LifeStream’s Fifth Annual Nine Cities Blood Drive Challenge resulted in the most units of blood collected in “challenge” history!
And you know that means – that more patients were helped than ever before!
Those patients, and their loved ones, were the real winners of the challenge.
Special congratulations to our winners:
City of Indio
For Most Units Collected (146 units)
City of Palm Desert
For Greatest Number of Residents Presented to Donate (172) *Donors registered to donate
City of Indian Wells
For Greatest Participation (by percentage of population)
We would also like to acknowledge the cities of Rancho Mirage (108 units), Desert Hot Springs (95); Palm Springs (98) and La Quinta (94) each of which set new “challenge” marks for their respective community.
Nearly 900 units of lifesaving blood were collected during the Nine Cities Blood Drive Challenge, at a time when blood banks nationwide were struggling to match supply with hospital’ demand.
Coachella Valley, YOU stepped up, rolled up your sleeves, and stood with patients in need.
