Assemblyman John Mikulin (R,C,I-Bethpage) joined with Long Island Blood Services to host a community blood drive on July 28 to address the severe shortage blood banks across the nation have been experiencing. The drive was a success, collecting 101 pints which has the potential to save up to 303 lives.
“There is no simpler act of paying it forward than by donating blood,” said Mikulin. “I would like to thank everyone in our community for their selflessness and generosity in supporting Long Island Blood Services, and particularly our partners at the Levittown Fire Department for hosting the drive.”
The assemblyman encourages anyone who can donate to become a regular donor. To learn more, please contact Long Island Blood Services or the American Red Cross or follow Mikulin’s social media account to find out when the next blood drive will be held in the 17th Assembly District.
