The dwindling blood supply in Inland Southern California is down to just a matter of hours.
Blood donation has never been robust in the region, including the Coachella Valley.
Often, Lifestream Blood Bank finds its blood supply down to just enough to cover a day or two.
But now, Lifestream’s blood inventory is only enough to cover the demand for a few hours.
Lifestream serves 80 hospitals in Southern California, including facilities in the Coachella Valley and High Desert.
There are blood donor centers in Rancho Mirage and La Quinta.
Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins are always welcome.
For more information or to make an appointment, call 1-800-TRY-GIVING or visit LStream.org.
