An all-day blood drive is scheduled for Friday at the town’s Community Center in Huntington.
The Town of Huntington and the New York Blood Center are sponsoring the drive, in response to a critical blood shortage. It will run from 8 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. at the Town’s Community Center in the Big H Shopping Center, 809 New York Ave.
“Please donate this life-saving gift. Local hospitals need your help with the blood shortage Long Island is facing,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci.
Each donation will help save up to three lives. Donors will receive a certificate for a free large sandwich or a premium salad at Long Island McDonald’s with any purchase.
