American Legion Blood Drive Surpasses Goal

The expectation was for 30 pints. The effort collected 131 to help out local blood supply.

Moving its first-ever blood drive from the American Legion Hall to the Sayville Fire Department last week turned out to be a very smart move by American Legion Post 651.

The initial goal was 30 pints. But blood drive collected 131 thanks to tremendous community support. 

“What a great community we live in, thank you donors. Many thanks to the Sayville Fire Department who allowed the American Legion to move the Blood Drive to their facility and also to Pam Ward of the Sayville fire department who became the point person for this effort and made this Emergency Blood Drive such a big success.  This was the American Legion's first Blood Drive and thanks to Pam Ward we learned a lot,” Ed McFadden, of the American Legion Post, told Patch.

Thanks to Ed for sending Patch the great photos of the event.
