Blood Drive – Travis Hall

Written By: KPN - Jan• 31•17

One Donation Can Save Three Lives

Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta is partnering with Father Sean Gann, pastor of St. Joseph’s Church in Kings Park, to host a blood drive on Friday, February 17, from 2pm – 8pm at Travis Hall – Lower Level, behind the church at 59 Church Street. The drive is to benefit the blood banks maintained by Long Island Blood Services, which provides blood to hospitals throughout Long Island.

To be eligible to donate blood, a person must be between the ages of 16 (16 with parental consent) and 75, weigh over 110 pounds and not have had a tattoo in the last 12 months. Please bring a valid photo ID with you and eat and drink plenty of fluids before donating.

“At this time of year with the cold weather, students away at college and some residents heading south, please help to prevent a shortage of blood supplies by donating one pint of  blood, which can help save three lives,” said Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta. As a “thank you,” LI Blood Services is giving each donor a coupon for a free McDonald’s salad or sandwich with any purchase. For more information or to make an appointment, please call Legislator Trotta’s district office at 631-854-3900.
