Help us celebrate the life of Earl Adams by donating blood. In addition to being a U.S. Navy veteran and a volunteer firefighter at the Bushnell’s Basin Fire Department for thirty-seven years, Adams was a lifelong blood donor whose first donation went to a little boy fighting leukemia.
Your blood is needed for many different kinds of patients. From a young child with a rare blood disorder to a family member fighting cancer, or even a friend involved in a car accident. Please schedule an appointment to donate at this special blood drive. You’ll feel good knowing you’ve helped change the lives of patients in need.
