I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of the donors who participated in the Blood Drive I sponsored on June 20th, in conjunction with the Farmingdale Public Library and Long Island Blood Services.
I am delighted to report that 52 pints of blood were collected from those who selflessly gave of their time to donate. This was far and above the projection heading into the day, and it just shows the great generosity of the community. These 52 pints will be able to help 156 individuals. In times of shortage, which we are unfortunately experiencing, this gift of blood gives life to those in need here on Long Island.
Library Director Debbie Podolski and all the members of the Farmingdale Public Library deserve special thanks for providing the much-needed space and for all the help they gave to my staff.
I give my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all who made this blood drive a success.
Thomas McKevitt, 17th District Assembly
