St. Mary’s and JUCO team up

April 01, 2011
Every spring the Alpine Bank Junior College World Series of baseball, better known as JUCO, is the hottest ticket in town. St. Mary’s can put a JUCO ticket in your hand just for rolling up your sleeve and donating blood.

“Donating blood is a simple thing that has a huge impact on everyone living in western Colorado,” says Cindy Parrish, director of Laboratory Services at St. Mary’s. “A blood donation can literally save lives.” The blood given at St. Mary’s donor center and donor coaches helps accident, surgery, and cancer patients in hospitals all over western Colorado, not just in Grand Junction.

“We’re teaming up with JUCO before and during the tournament,” Parrish says. “Donate blood in the months leading up to JUCO and look for our big blue donor coach at the games!”
