“I am pleased to collaborate with Councilman LaValle, my partner in Town government,” stated Legislator Muratore, “especially for such a worthwhile cause.

Please consider scheduling an appointment in advance to help us not only reach, but surpass our goal of collecting 50 pints of blood.”

Five million patients will need blood this year. I encourage the residents of the Third Council District to participate in this event; you will truly be giving the gift of life to someone in need.”
