Ra Seminar Promotes Identity Theft Awareness

Identity Theft Seminar

Assemblyman Ed Ra (left) and Kenny Heino speak at the Identity Theft Seminar

Assemblyman Ed Ra (R-Franklin Square) recently hosted a seminar to promote identity theft awareness at the West Hempstead Library. Ra was joined by Kenny Heino of Nassau County Consumer Affairs to educate his constituents about the importance of becoming more vigilant in defending themselves against identity theft.

 

“It’s so important to be aware of how common identity theft has become and what we can do to deter it,” said Ra. “As we continue to become more reliant on sharing personal information on the internet and allowing others to access it, we have to also recognize that we are more vulnerable to incidents of identity theft. The people who seek to exploit this information go to great lengths, so it is critical to raise awareness in order to protect ourselves from becoming victims.”

 

“Thank you to Kenny Heino and Nassau County Consumer Affairs for sharing such vital information with everyone in attendance, and for helping to make the event a great success. By working together at the state and local levels, we can do great things to strengthen and protect our communities,” Ra concluded.

Blood Drive in West Hempstead- Donors Receive Free Mets Tickets

Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray has announced that Hempstead Town will be hosting a New York Blood Center (NYBC) Blood Drive in the parking lot between the West Hempstead Library (500 Hempstead Avenue) and Venus Diner on July 7, 2014 from 1:30-7:30 p.m. The drive will take place in a NYBC Busmobile. Those who donate will receive a voucher for a pair of Mets tickets.

 

“We are thrilled that people who choose to give the gift of life at this event will receive a very special gift themselves,” said Murray. “Blood is always needed, but after the Independence Day holiday it is expected that the need will be even greater.”

 

Donating blood takes less than an hour, and a single donation of one pint of blood can be used to save multiple lives. Nearly 2,000 donations are needed each day in New York and New Jersey alone. About one in seven hospital admissions requires a blood transfusion. With a limited shelf life, supplies must be continually replenished.

 

“Blood donors are so important during the summer months, when donations are estimated to drop by nearly 20%. Unfortunately, the need for blood doesn’t take a summer vacation,” said Harvey Schaffler, NYBC Executive Director, Donor Marketing.

 

Donors should bring a photo or signature ID and be between the ages of 16-75 (16 year olds must have parental permission, those 76 and over need a doctor’s note). Those donating should be at least 110 lbs. and have not gotten any tattoos in the last 12 months. If you have questions concerning medical eligibility, please call 1-800-688-0900.

 

New York Blood Center is one of the nation’s largest non-profit, community-based blood centers. For 50 years, NYBC has been providing blood, transfusion products and services to hospitals serving more than 20 million people in New York City, Long Island, the Hudson Valley, New Jersey, and parts of Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

 

“Anyone has the ability to be a hero,” concluded Supervisor Murray. “Donate blood and be a hero to all those whose lives you save.”
