The City of Indio continues its partnership with LifeStream to host blood drives to save lives during the summer months when donation levels decrease. On May 31, 2018, the Indio Police Department successfully held its annual Guns & Hoses Blood Drive. Nearly 20 units of blood was collected and more than 25 people participated. On July 26, 2018, the City of Indio will again defend its title as the reigning champion of the 9 Cities Blood Drive Challenge at the Indio Teen Center from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Indio has won the event three years in a row thanks to the generous blood donations of hundreds of Indio residents and community members. Let’s win it again this year!
