Oyster Bay Town Councilman Joe Muscarella and Town Supervisor John Venditto urge residents to participate.

“Blood banks need to be prepared 365 days a year,” Councilman Muscarella said. “That is why people should always donate whenever they can. Donating is quick and easy and is an entirely safe procedure. All materials used during the process are sterile, disposable and used only once…by you. There is no danger of contracting any disease, including AIDS. The pint of blood you donate will never be missed by your body, which manufactures an equivalent amount in 24 hours. When broken down into component parts, one single pint of blood can be used to heal and help the bodies of three different people.”
