Legislator Kennedy Reaches 1000 Pints of Blood

1000 pints of blood

August 3, 2017 – Legislator Leslie Kennedy lauded the collection of the 1000th pint of blood donated under her watch at yesterday’s blood drive. Hosted by the New York Blood Center, the event was held outside the district office at the Hauppauge County Complex, the blood drive featured a barbecue set up by the Department of Public Works and music provided by the Department of Information Technology’s own band. Turnout at the blood drive exceeded expectations; over 60 individuals volunteered to contribute a pint each to the Blood Center’s blood banks, bringing the total donated through Legislator Kennedy’s events to 1007 pints. Thankfully, food and drink remained plentifully available in spite of the unexpectedly high turnout thanks to the generous food donations from Stop and Shop, Manino’s, Buona Sera, Butera’s, King Kullen, and Panico’s Market. Those who attended the blood drive also donated non-perishable food items to Long Island Cares. Each Blood donor will receive two free Met’s tickets in the mail.

 “I am thankful to each and every one of you who took the time out of your schedules to potentially save a life,” Legislator Kennedy stated at the event. “And for the food donors, the phlebotomists who manned the donations stations, the IT band and the custodians at Public Works who all pitched in to make this event not only a possibility, but a stirring success.”

Legislator Kennedy’s next blood drive will be held at the Ronkonkoma Street Fair on September 3rd. All are encouraged to attend and donate.
