Galloway Mayor Don Purdy gives the thumbs up sign as he starts his donation of a pint of blood. Behind him, Deputy Mayor Tony Coppola is nearly finished. Nearly 40 donors gave nearly 30 pints of blood Tuesday, Sept. 4 at Purdy Collision Center in Galloway.

Reports of a depleted blood supply in South Jersey got the attention of former Assemblyman Edward Kline, president of Kline Construction, who got his friend Galloway Mayor Don Purdy involved in the drive.

Purdy said 38 people gave 29 pints of blood.
