Help the victims of Hurricane Sandy

Friday, November 02, 2012

Sandy has affected much of the eastern half of the country and the American Red Cross is sending help where it is needed.

  • The response to Sandy is very large and very costly and the Red Cross needs your help now.
  • To donate visit, call 1-800-RED CROSS or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
  • Hundreds of Red Cross blood drives have already been cancelled due to the storm, and more are expected. This represents a loss of as many as 9,000 blood and platelet products. We're asking people who are eligible to give blood especially in places not affected by the storm, to schedule a blood donation now. Visit to make an appointment today.
