The son of Lucille and the late Louis L. Ceruzzi, Mr. Ceruzzi was a resident of Southport. He was born in New Haven and raised in Woodbridge.

He received a Bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University and a Juris Doctor from New York University School of Law. He began his career as a tax attorney in New Haven, CT in the 1980s, and practiced law for several years before transitioning into real estate development.

He is also survived by his mother, Lucille Ceruzzi of Orange; three siblings, Dr. William Ceruzzi of West Hartford, Judith Craig of Greenwich and John Ceruzzi of Southport; and several nieces and nephews.

IMG_5849The Amity Regional High School Chapter of the National Honor Society and the American Red Cross sponsored a blood drive at Amity High School on Monday, Oct. 27.

A steady stream of students volunteered to donate blood, some were first-timers (identified by a green sticker), while others were repeat donors (red stickers).

According to the teachers who were on hand to assist, there were no fainters this year — as of 2 p.m.

You never know when you may need a life-saving blood transfusion. Accidents and illnesses happen all the time when we least expect them and it would be tragic if the hospital you were in was experiencing a blood shortage when you need it most.

Every student who donated a pint today could help save up to 3 lives.

“Please support our community, with the gift of life,” said Paul Leahy of the Red Cross. “Every donation can save up to 3 lives. Every day someone somewhere needs blood. Without dedicated donors like you serving as a vital link between the blood supply and those who need blood, the Red Cross could not carry out its lifesaving mission.”

In order to donate you must be healthy — feel well and be able to perform normal activities.

If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, healthy also means that you are being treated and the condition is under control.

You must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds.

The Red Cross continually run blood drives..as the need is constant throughout the year. They do declare emergency blood needs around the holidays due to lack of donor flow.

Red blood has a shelf life of 42 days and platelets only 7 days.

Red Cross Puts Out an Urgent Appeal for Blood Donations

blood_drive-244x300-1The Red Cross announced YESTERDAY thru August 15  that we are in URGENT APPEAL.

The American Red Cross is facing a looming blood shortage leading to an urgent need for donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve and give.

Donations through the Red Cross are down by about 8 percent over the last 11 weeks, resulting in about 80,000 fewer donations than expected.

The number of donors continues to decline and the shortfall is significant enough that the Red Cross could experience an emergency situation in the coming weeks.

The Independence Day holiday falling on Friday reduced the number of blood drives scheduled in early July. Many sponsors did not host drives because people took vacations during the long weekend or the entire week.

In an average summer week, about 4,400 Red Cross blood drives are scheduled, compared to Independence Day week when 3,450 drives occurred.

The Red Cross expected more people would donate after the holiday weekend ended, but donations did not significantly increase

 

There will be blood drives in the following Orange locations: 

Congregation Or Shalom

205 Old Grassy Hill Road

Wed July 23rd

1-6:15

 

Bertucci’s

550 Boston Post Road

Monday Aug 4th

11:30-4:30
