I write to you to address a dire situation that we, as a community, are facing. 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 Rose Walker, will be hosting a blood drive at the Farmingdale Public Library on August 25 from 1:30 to 7:30 p.m. For more information, please contact my office at 516-571-6212. 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.

There’s no question that Halloween is a holiday for the kids. But what about the kids that can’t enjoy it normally because they have severe allergies? That’s when “The Teal Pumpkin Project” steps in to help.
“The Teal Pumpkin Project is designed to promote safety, inclusion and respect of individuals managing food allergies – and to keep Halloween a fun, positive experience for all,” said Plainview resident Heather Alberti, whose five year old son, Nathan, has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and tree nuts.
