DOÑA ANA COUNTY BLOOD DRIVE NETS 25 PINTS

Doña Ana County employees and the general public donated 25 pints of blood on Friday during the 13th Annual Judy Price Memorial Blood Drive held in the rotunda of the Doña Ana County Government Center at 845 N. Motel Blvd.
The event was held in honor of the late Judy Price, who died Sept. 4, 2001 after a long battle with cancer. Price was a longtime employee and leader in Doña Ana County government, having been named acting county manager in 1995, 2000 and again in 2001 while the search for a permanent manager was underway.
The blood drive was coordinated by Janine Divyak of the Doña Ana County Planning Department, who oversees the event each year. Since 2001, Doña Ana County employees have donated more than 750 pints of blood in Price’s memory.
