The Student Council of the Frank P. Long Intermediate School recently hosted their 4th annual "Little Doctors" Blood Drive. The South Country Community was tremendously generous by donating 50 pints of blood to the Long Island Blood Services. The project is designed to teach younger children about the value of community service and charity.

In early February, the Long Island Blood Service made a presentation to the students. They explained the importance of donating blood and the tremendous need for donations in our area. On February 24, 2015, the Frank P. Long Student Council became the "Little Doctors" for the day. They signed up community members to donate blood and created posters to help promote their cause. In teams, they worked to greet people as they entered the school and aided them after their donation was completed by serving them sweets and juice. The Long Island Blood Service was thrilled with the children's first attempt at such a task and expressed a desire to make this an annual event at Frank P. Long Intermediate School.

On behalf of Frank P. Long Intermediate School, we would like to thank our Student Council for their hard work and to the dedicated community members who took time from their personal lives to donate blood.
