St. Anastasia Blood Drive

St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council 5911, held a blood drive for St. Anastasia Parish in Douglaston on Sunday, November 15. “I would like to thank my brothers at St. Anastasia and Boy Scout Troop 153, whose help was immeasurable. We collected 53 pints of blood and I was told by the New York Blood Center that each pint of blood has three components and that will save three lives,” said Grand Knight Frederick Bedell Jr.  Assistant Boy Scout Leader Thomas Tuffy is seen here on a stretcher, about to donate blood; in back is Bedell (l.), and Chancellor Giuseppe Petruso of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus (r.).
