Who’s #1? The Nine Cities Blood Drive Challenge begins July 8
Coachella Valley communities go head-to-head in the compassion department this summer during LifeStream blood bank’s Fifth Annual Nine Cities Blood Drive Challenge.
For drive information, go to https://www.lstream.org/2017-nine-cities-blood-drive-challenge/
The Nine Cities challenge is aimed at bringing greater awareness to the need for local blood donation, especially during summer months when collections typically decrease while hospital demand increases for blood products.
All Nine Cities Challenge donors receive a complimentary, single-day admission ticket to Wet ‘n’ Wild Palm Springs, valid through October 15, closing day of the 2017 season; and a coupon for a free Jack in the Box combo meal.
All donors also are automatically eligible to win a weekly drawing for a pair of single-day Disneyland/Disney California Adventure Park “park hopper” tickets.
Walk-ins are welcome at all drives but appointments are suggested and may be made by calling 1.800.879.4484 or by visiting www.LStream.org.
LifeStream is the exclusive provider of blood products and services for Desert Regional Medical Center, Eisenhower Medical Center, JFK Memorial Hospital, Hi-Desert Medical Center, Palo Verde Hospital, and Bush Naval Hospital, Twentynine Palms.
