On June 14, 2023, Legislator Bergin honored the Long Island Ducks with a proclamation, on behalf of the New York Blood Center.
The New York Blood Center and the Long Island Ducks partnership began in 2002 with their annual Fan Blood Drive, resulting in more than 800 Blood donations. Just one donation can save up to three lives.
In 2009, the Long Island Ducks extended their partnership with the New York Blood Center through a special on-field recognition ceremony. This ceremony is held annually to reward outstanding blood drive participation within schools and affiliated groups participating in the Little Doctor Program.
Thank you, Long Island Ducks, for your contribution and dedication to the New York Blood Center!
