To help hospitals meet the pressing need for blood, the Town of Oyster Bay partnered with the New York Blood Center to host a blood donation drive at the Hicksville Athletic Center.

“Blood donations are extremely important to help secure necessary blood transfusions for patients. As blood supplies remain critically low, this blood collection drive, one of the largest in our area, was critical for our local hospitals,” said Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino. “Just one pint of blood can save up to three lives. I thank everyone who donated the gift of life at our blood drive.”
