Talk about generous citizens.
More than 130 people participated in Assemblyman Edward Braunstein’s 4th annual Summer Blood Drive on August 11 at the Bay Terrace Shopping Center. The event was in partnership with the New York Blood Center, which declared a blood shortage emergency in June.
“Thank you to everyone who braved the terrible weather to donate at our record-breaking blood drive, which my office sponsored with the New York Blood Center,” Braunstein said. “Despite the heat and rain, 131 donors participated, and thanks to their generosity, hundreds of lives will be saved.”
