Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta and St. Joseph’s Church Host A Blood Drive on June 28 at Travis Hall in Kings Park


Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta is collaborating with St. Joseph’s Church in Kings Park, to host a blood drive on Tuesday, June 28, from 1:00pm until 7:00pm. It is at Travis Hall – Lower Level, behind St. Joseph’s at 59 Church Street. The drive is to benefit the blood banks maintained by Long Island Blood Services, which provides blood to hospitals throughout Long Island.

To be eligible to donate blood, a person must be between the ages of 16 (16 with parental consent) and 76,(if older than 76, you need permission from your doctor), weigh over 110 pounds and not have had a tattoo in the last three months. Please bring a valid photo ID with you. LI Blood Services recommends that you eat and drink plenty of fluids before donating. Previous donors should bring their blood donor card with them. Each donor has an opportunity to win six tickets to a Mets game, and to receive a Mets t-shirt as a thank you for donating to the blood drive.

“Hospitals are always in need of blood supplies so it is important that if you can donate blood to do so because one pint of blood can help save three lives. During the past two years with COVID-19 there has been an increase need for blood,” said Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta. For more information, please call Legislator Trotta’s district office at 631-854-3900.
