I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of the donors who participated in the Blood Drive I sponsored on July 17, in conjunction with the Island Trees Public Library and Long Island Blood Services. I am delighted to report that 48 pints of blood were collected from those who selflessly gave of their time to donate. This shows the great generosity of the community. These 48 pints will be able to help nearly 150 individuals. In times of shortage, which we are unfortunately experiencing, this gift of blood gives life to those in need here on Long Island.
The management and staff of the Island Trees 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 great success.
Thomas McKevitt, Assembly, 17th District
