CHP Blood Drive a Success

LifeStream was able to collect 22 blood donations in just under five hours during the second annual "Blead by Example" drive held Wednesday at the Temecula Area CHP office.

LifeStream and California Highway Patrol Temecula Area's second annual "Blead by Example" blood drive held Wednesday in Temecula was deemed a success.

LifeStream was able to collect 22 blood donations in just under five hours, said CHP Officer Nathan Baer, spokesperson for CHP Temecula Area.

"I was pleased to see the community and the Temecula Area CHP officers come out and donate," Baer said.

"It feels good to know that not only can we investigate traffic collisions, but we can also donate blood to people who may need it as a result of traffic collisions. Many thanks again!"

( LifeStream and California Highway Patrol Temecula Area's second annual "Blead by Example" blood drive held Wednesday in Temecula was deemed a success.) 22 blood donations, I would call that response a total disgrace and a failure. From an adult population of approx. 70,000 people in Temecula , yet only 22 adults gave blood , its disgusting. And for the CHP and Lifestream to call it a success, just boggles the mind. It shows how insular and uncaring the population of Temecula is. Blood is the water of the body and its life. I wonder how many adults in Temecula watched Dancing with the Stars on TV, Definitely more than 22 I would say. So watching DWTS is priority over giving blood to save another's life. WAY NOT TO GO TEMECULA.
