Montesano Sponsored Blood Drive – A Community Success

Assemblyman Montesano with John Lau of Glen Head

Assemblyman Michael A. Montesano (R,I,C-Glen Head), in conjunction with the Gold Coast Public Library and Long Island Blood Services, hosted a community blood drive at the Gold Coast Library at the Library Annex Room on July 11 from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. With 26 pints of blood collected, Assemblyman Montesano was thrilled to see such an outpouring of support from the community.

“Plain and simple – giving blood saves lives,” said Assemblyman Montesano. “This community really stepped up to help save the lives of others with this blood drive. My sincerest thanks and gratitude go to the members of the Glen Head community for coming out and giving the gift of life.

“It is also imperative to thank the community businesses that donated raffle items for this event,” said Montesano. “A heartfelt thank you goes out to Bagel Café, Café Baci, Caggino’s, Fork & Vine, Le French Cleaners and Tailors Ltd., Mama Lena’s Italian Market, and Sergio’s Pizzeria and Restaurant. This drive would not have been made possible without the outpouring of support from community members and businesses.”
