Blood Needed For Hurricane Harvey Victims

One way you can help out Hurricane Harvey victims without giving money is to donate blood. The Blood Center of Wisconsin has put out an appeal. Fay Spano of the Blood Center says because of the high waters and staffing issues in the Houston area they are not able to take blood donations there. A couple hundred units of blood have already been donated in Wisconsin. There are 10 donations centers in Wisconsin, the nearest to us being in Manitowoc and West Bend, but you can also check the Blood Center’s website for blood drive information as well. Blood donations are generally down this time of year so blood donations are also needed here at home. Spano says there is a critical need for any type O either positive or negative for Hurricane victims. You can call 1-877-BE-A-HERO to make an appointment.
