LifeStream Blood Drive Held In Honor of Fred Twyman

lifestream bloodYesterday at Countryside Marketplace, a LifeStream Blood Drive was held from 10 A.M to 3 P.M. to honor the late Fred Twyman, a Menifee City Councilman and Paloma Valley High School teacher. The Menifee Valley Chamber of Commerce and the staff of Paloma Valley High School joined forces in order to make the blood drive possible.

Twyman was known for administering blood drives offered for kids attending Paloma Valley High School every school year. In his love for helping others, Fred Twyman accumulated around 43,000 units of blood all together from his years of monitoring blood drives.

blood donorsOn a hot Friday afternoon, friends, family, chamber members, and local citizens attended the blood drive to show appreciation of Twyman and the deeds he accomplished for the community. Three LifeStream trucks were set up in the shopping center parking lot along with tents for registration and a waiting area. With all the efforts put into the day, LifeStream collected over 45 units of blood donations from over 50 individuals. All individuals who donated blood were provided with snacks, refreshments, a resting area, and a Baskin Robins "Pint For A Pint" coupon awarding donors with a free pint of any flavor of ice cream. Donors also received pencils engraved with the words "Fred Twyman III 1965-2011".

Fred Twyman will always be recognized as an accomplished citizen who wanted to help others grow and thrive. In donating blood, you are helping others do so. Members of the City Chamber and Paloma Valley High School wanted to present that idea to our community in administering this blood drive in honor of Fred Twyman.
