Students from Fairmont and Alter high schools will make a special show of unity at the Fairmont vs. Alter basketball game on Saturday by presenting a $1,000 “Kettering Unity in the Community” award to “Brigid’s Path,” a new treatment facility for babies born with addiction.
Unity Campaign sponsor Universal 1 Credit Union awarded $500 to each school for hosting a Community Blood Center “Unity in the Community” blood drive in the fall.
The schools traditionally combine the awards and alternate choosing a charitable organization as the recipient.
"Brigid’s Path" is renovating a donated building in Kettering and is nearing a $1.9 million fundraising goal. It's mission is to provide short-term, in-patient care to newborns suffering from prenatal drug exposure. Learn more at https://brigidspath.org/.
Fairmont hosted a Unity Blood Drive on November 3, followed by the Alter Unity Blood Drive on November 17. The combined blood drives resulted in 282 donors, 135 first-time donors, and 220 donations.
