For the past three years, I have had the privilege of organizing blood drives for the New York City Council in District 19, covering northeast Queens from College Point to Little Neck.

For reasons which have been all too obvious, this year has been something of a challenge, but the Annual Council District 19 Summer Blood Drive will be on Thursday, September 5 from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Bell Boulevard at the LIRR Bayside Station overpass.

I have a challenge of my own. There are six people vying for the opportunity to represent the district in the City Council. I challenge them to advance this valuable Council function by encouraging their supporters, friends and family to participate.

I realize that this is an important day to my Jewish friends, but the need for blood observes no calendar and your donation could help save three lives. We will do anything we can to accommodate you so you can get home to be with your loved ones.

Here’s the link to make an online appointment and be eligible to receive a $25 American Express gift card graciously provided by the Bayside Village BID after you donate. https://drm.nybloodcenter.org

You can also call the Council District Office at 718-631-6703 during normal business hours. All donors are also eligible to receive a pair of Mets-Giants tickets provided by Gregg Sullivan of Bayside Live TV.

Make an appointment or just show up. You can help save three lives. Thank you.

 

Victor G. Mimoni

Director of Communications

Council District 19
