17th Annual Judy Price Memorial Blood Drive
Doña Ana County – Doña Ana County employees and the general public will have the opportunity on Friday, July 28, to give blood in honor of the late Judy Price, who died Sept. 4, 2001, after a long battle with cancer. This is the 17th year of the Judy Price Memorial Blood Drive. Since 2001, Doña Ana County employees and the public have donated more than 800 pints of blood in her memory. The drive will be conducted from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the rotunda of the Doña Ana County Government Center at 845 N. Motel Blvd. Price began her employment with Doña Ana County on April 15, 1991, as director of planning. She was named acting assistant county manager in September of 1991, and held the position for four months before returning to the Planning Department. In 1994, under her leadership, the department was renamed the Department of Community Development to indicate the wide range of services provided. On Dec. 13, 1995, Price was appointed acting county manager while a seven-month search for a permanent manager was underway. In July of 2000, she was again named acting county manager, and she remained in the position until Jan 22, 2001. The 2017 blood drive will be coordinated by Janine Divyak, who has coordinated the event since its inception. To schedule a time to donate, call (575) 525-6130 or visit http://bit.ly/2uel8Ht
