Matt Latko, the district supervisor, is an organ recipient and received numerous blood transfusions before and during the organ donation process. This, coupled with several other NYS Thruway workers who have received blood products, led them to get creative about filling their appointment sheets.
Not only did employees in the Cheektowaga area come out to donate, workers carpooled from as far south as Silver Creek and far east as Henrietta to make their first blood drive a success.
First Blood Drive: 2020
