Updated Ways YOU Can Help In Aftermath of Florence

The Red Cross needs your blood...

September 14, 2018

The American Red Cross usually asks for monetary donations in the wake of disasters like Hurricane Florence. And they would gladly still take them right now.

But they are asking you to help in another way right now.

Most people think that blood donations are only required when there are events where a large number of people are hit with physical trauma and need surgery, etc.

But that's not the case. The Red Cross' blood supply helps everyday people, every day, in the United States and they have to keep that blood supply stocked.

The problem here is that they had to cancel over 130 blood drives in the affected area due to the storm. 

So that's where WE can step up.

Find your local blood drives here, and please donate to help make up that supply.
