Villa Ford, LifeStream Team Up for Blood Drive

Share Article

Blood drive is scheduled to take place at the Villa Ford dealership on October 20.

General Manager Scott Wade of Villa Ford in Orange, CA was asked why the dealership is partnering with LifeStream to support their blood bank donation program. He pulled out the letter from LifeStream confirming their scheduled date and read the first lines, “Thank you for your continued commitment to savings lives; as a result of our efforts, many patients will see another tomorrow.” Wade went on to make a compelling point about the need, “LifeStream must receive at least 500 donations daily in order to support 175,000 transfusions annually – that is a community obligation we are proud to support.”

A member of the Wilson Automotive Group, Villa Ford is hosting the Blood Drive on Monday, October 20th, from 11:00am until 4:00pm. LifeStream is an independent, non-profit local blood bank providing blood products and services to more than 50 medical facilities in Southern California. To participate, donors must be over 15 years of age and meet certain criteria set by LifeStream. “The need is pressing,” Wade added, “this effort will ultimately meet the need for surgery and trauma patients as well as transplant recipients, burn victims, cancer patients and premature infants.”

Another benefit for the local community as well as world-wide is that blood donors will be given the chance to join the Be The Match Registry®. This organization, the largest and most diverse registry in the world, provides a unique opportunity to give life-saving marrow transplants to people in need, including thousands of patients with leukemia.
