Adamson Blood Drive Partners With UNC for Nursing Scholarship

a blood donor saved my life

Adamson Funeral and Cremation Services has partnered with the UNC Alumni Association to expand participation in its annual blood drive.

For every unit of blood donated before Aug. 17, Adamson will contribute $10 to a UNC nursing scholarship. People who donate blood during that time need only notify the Alumni Association of their donation to have it counted toward the scholarship. Full details are available on the Alumni Association blog.

Adamson also will host its fifth annual local blood drive 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10, at its facility, 2000 47th Ave. Walk-ins are welcome, but you can avoid waiting in line by calling Adamson at (970) 353-1212 or visiting their sign-up website to schedule a time.

Every donor at this event will receive refreshments and free prizes, including UNC gear and game tickets.
