Bayport-Blue Point High School senior Catherine DeVito is hosting a Blood
Stock Scholarship Blood Drive, through the New York Blood Center, on Friday, September 6 from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Bayport- Blue Point Public Library.
In addition to help saving lives through blood donations, the program benefits the organizer in a positive way as well. If DeVito's drive collects 39 pints of blood she will receive a certain
scholarship, and if 50 or more pints of blood are donated the scholarship reward increases.
"This drive not only supports me, but it
supports the members of the community at large, and many people in need," DeVito explained in an email to Patch.
Anyone wishing more information or who would like to make an appointment to give blood can reach DeVito by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
