Eagle Scout Brian O’Reilly will host a Bone Marrow Donor Drive at Smith Haven Mall’s Center Court in Lake Grove on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Brian is a sophomore at Smithtown High School West and a member of Boy Scout Troop 888. The event will benefit the Gift of Life for his Eagle Scout Project. Participation in the bone marrow drive is for people between the ages of 17 and 35. All a potential donor has to do is answer a few questions and get a quick swab of his/her cheeks. It takes just a minute to save a person’s life. “I think Brian is doing a terrific project that could benefit so many people,” said Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta.
