Red Cross encourages blood and platelet donations

(Source: WOIO) (Source: WOIO)
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

As the American Red Cross responds to wildfires and historic hurricanes, eligible donors are reminded to give blood or platelet donations during September for National Preparedness Month.

Hurricane Irma has forced the cancellation of dozens of Red Cross blood drives in the Southeast, resulting in more than 2,100 uncollected blood and platelet donations. Natural disasters like hurricanes can disrupt blood drives and prevent donors from giving, but hospital patients still depend on lifesaving transfusions. Volunteer blood and platelet donors are the only sources for blood products needed by hospital patients.
