World Blood Donor Day Blood Drive

The City of Twentynine Palms is excited to announce a community blood drive proudly hosted in partnership with LifeStream Blood Bank. The event will take place on Friday, June 14, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Freedom Plaza in downtown Twentynine Palms (73551 Twentynine Palms Highway).

This vital event encourages community members to donate blood, a gesture that can save lives and significantly impact local healthcare. Every donor will have the opportunity to win big, as each donation is an automatic entry into the “Cruisin’ Into Summer Giveaway,” running from June 1 to August 31. Donors can win an electrifying 2024 Toyota bz4x courtesy of Toyota of San Bernardino.

Additionally, all participants will receive a limited-edition San Bernardino County t-shirt while supplies last as a token of appreciation for their life-saving contribution.

To make an appointment, donors can visit LStream.org/twentynine-palms or call (800) 879-4484. Walk-ins are also welcome, but appointments are encouraged to ensure a smooth and efficient donation process.

“Giving blood is a simple yet incredibly impactful way to help those in need within our community,” said Scott Clinkscales, Community Events Coordinator for the City of Twentynine Palms. “We are proud to host this event and bring our community together to support such an important cause.”

LifeStream Blood Bank emphasizes the importance of maintaining a robust blood supply, especially during the summer months when donations often decline. Community support is crucial to ensuring that hospitals have the necessary resources to respond to emergencies and ongoing medical needs.
