September 10, 2017 – While the NFL kickoff began last Sunday, Leslie Kennedy was deep into her season of saving lives. At the Nesconset Day Fair, the Legislator was out in full force, with her team to collect lifesaving blood. Mets tickets will be sent to each person who presented to donate.

On this beautiful fall like day, New York Blood Center was able to assist 55 people who presented to donate, a considerable amount for one Sunday. In addition to the Blood Van that the Legislator brought in, Leslie also had an informational table with pertinent government information as well as information on addiction and other problems ailing society.

 “I am thankful for all the 55 people who came out to donate on this beautiful Sunday,” said Legislator Kennedy. “Blood is needed  now more than ever, I would like to thank New York Blood Services for sending their dedicated team, and the Nesconset Chamber of Commerce for organizing this street fair.”
