Suffolk County, NY - December 17, 2014 - Legislator John M. Kennedy, Jr, in conjunction with Long Island Blood Services is pleased to announce the finale of the 2014 Bloodfest: Out for Blood Tour, which will be held on Monday December 29, 2014 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Suffolk County Legislative Building. As in the past, every person who makes a donation will receive two (2) free New York Mets tickets to a game in the 2015 season. This last drive, held at 725 Veterans Memorial Highway in Hauppauge will be Legislator Kennedy’s last drive as Legislator, before he gets sworn in as Suffolk County Comptroller on January 1, 2015, but is a continuation of Legislator Kennedy’s partnership with Long Island Blood Services to bring blood drives to various events throughout Suffolk County in order to help stock the County’s blood banks.
As most people know, over the last few years, we have had major storms, hurricanes, blizzards and of course, Superstorm Sandy, which have always put a tremendous strain on our blood supply. It is more important now more than ever before, to make a donation of blood whenever possible, especially in this season of good wishes and helping every man and woman.
“I would like to thank everyone who has come out in the past and implore them to do so again this year. We must keep our blood banks full and to safeguard our community against having the supply at a dangerously low level” explained Kennedy.
If you need more information, would like to book an appointment or to volunteer, please feel free to contact my office at (631) 854-3735.
