Letter: Lend A Pint Of Blood

We, as a community, are faced with a dire situation. The New York Blood Center is asking for assistance over the summer to maintain the necessary supply of all blood types, but specifically O-negative. 

 

The summer months pose the greatest difficulty for the Blood Center as they historically see a drop in donations. I hope this letter serves as a reminder and I urge all residents to continue to help those in need by donating blood. Every donation goes a long way to help saving the lives of those in medical emergencies.

 

I, along with Legislator Michael Venditto, will be hosting a blood drive at the Farmingdale Public Library on August 25th from 1:30 to 7:30PM. For more information, please contact my office. 

To find other locations to donate blood or for information on how to organize a blood drive, please call toll free 1-800-933-2566 or visit www.nybloodcenter.org.

 

I thank all of you in advance for your generous donations as we continue to help make our community stronger and more prepared for any sort of emergency, both small and large.

The Columbus Day Parade played host a to a very special group this year. The Family Residences and Essential Enterprises’ (FREE) Players Drum Corps made history as they became the first special needs drum corps to march in the New York City Columbus Day Parade.

The group marched up Fifth Avenue from 44th to 72nd Street with a red carpet performance on Fifth Avenue between 67th and 69th Streets.

Driving rain and cold temperatures could not keep Long Islanders from coming out to support the first annual DogFest Walk ‘n Roll, a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence. Held for the first time at Marjorie Post Park in Massapequa, dogs of all breeds and sizes came with their humans with one goal in mind; to raise funds for CCI.

Massapequa resident and event organizer Yvonne Dagger, past president and now board member, discussed the importance of the event.
