PAST EVENT: Leo Lessard Memorial Blood Drive

Celebrate life and make a difference by giving blood. Leo was the recipient of multiple transfusions through the spring and summer of 2017, giving him more time to enjoy life and to spend time with his loved ones.

Please help other families get this precious time with their loved one. An hour of your day can give months or years of precious time to a family.

Thank you to everyone who participated!

Leo was always giving back to his community and to the people around him. He gave back not only with his lifelong dedication to helping others through politics but also with his genuine kindness and concern for everyone around him – he was never too tired or busy to help someone in need. Leo’s time here would have been lessened had it not been for the blood transfusions he received. He was able to continue to contribute to his community as well as spend time doing the things he loved, such as boating on Milton Three Ponds in his antique Chris-Craft boat and spending time with his loved ones.

Leo’s family is extremely grateful for the extra time they had with him. Because of the generosity of blood donors, they had another Fathers Day, birthday and many days spent together enjoying each other’s company. Please help other families get this precious time with their loved one. An hour of your day can give months or years of precious time to a family.
