As Hurricane Sally moves closer to the coast of Alabama, hospitals brace for a significant hit. With local inventories already low due to summer blood shortages, Alabama communities are pleading for support. Blood donors in Florida and Georgia are asked to help by giving blood today.
LifeSouth serves hospitals in Alabama, Georgia and Florida, and the storm will affect the ability of Alabama centers to hold blood drives during the storm. Donating helps ensure blood will be available to help those who may be injured or need a blood transfusion during and after the storm. All blood types are needed, especially type O donors and platelet donors.
First time donors are welcome and encouraged to give. LifeSouth also asks businesses, schools, churches and other organizations to help by hosting a blood drive.
To find a blood drive close to you or to learn more about the donation process, call LifeSouth’s toll-free number, 1-888-795-2707 or visit www.lifesouth.org.
