Smithtown, NY - March 7, 2017 - Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta thanks the many local residents and the parishioners of St. Joseph’s Church in Kings Park who participated in the recent blood drive to benefit the blood banks maintained by Long Island Blood Services, which provides blood to hospitals throughout Long Island. “It is wonderful that we collected 70 pints of blood,” Trotta said.
“With the recent snow storm, many blood drives were cancelled -- so the response to our blood drive was especially important. Several people were first time donors, including a sixteen year old girl whose father is a regular donor, so that was great,” added Legislator Trotta.
Legislator Robert Trotta represents the 13th Legislative District, which includes Smithtown, Fort Salonga, Kings Park, San Remo, Nissequogue, Head of the Harbor, and St. James, as well as most of East Northport and parts of Northport and Commack.
Legislator Trotta serves on the Legislature’s Economic Development, Environment, Planning & Agriculture, Health, Public Works, Transportation & Energy, and Ways & Means Committees.
