Kennedy Gives the Gift of Life at Lake Grove


June 24, 2019 –Legislator Leslie Kennedy (R-Nesconset) along with Kevin LaValle (R-Selden) and Mayor Robert Scottaline (D-Lake Grove), hosted a blood drive at the Lake Grove Recreation Center in Lake Grove.

Once more Legislator Kennedy enlisted the New York Blood Center to provide their phenomenal collection services. Every day, the New York Blood Center collects up to 2,000 units of blood for hospitals in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. All donors receive a free pair of Mets tickets. The Mets have been a long-time supporter of the New York Blood Center.

The partnership continues to be a success. This blood drive alone saw over forty residents volunteer to donate blood. After collecting approximately four hundred pints last year, Leslie hopes to top that number as her 2019 Blood Drive Series continues. The New York Blood Center is grateful for Legislator Kennedy’s devotion to seeing the needs of others and finding a way to contribute, and Legislator Kennedy was pleased to help.

“It’s always important to donate blood, and I am happy to see that so many in the community are willing to put the needs of others ahead of their own. I urge anyone who can to come down to our future blood drives,” said Legislator Kennedy.

Kennedy’s next blood drive will be on September 1st 2019 at the Ronkonkoma Street Fair on Labor Day Weekend.
