LifeSouth seeking donors; Hurricane Sally impacting blood drives

SHARE NOW

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The potential impact of Hurricane Sally could be severe, and blood donors are asked to donate now to help prepare for the effect of the storm on Alabama’s blood supply. LifeSouth has experienced a significant number of blood drive cancellations and asks donors to come into a donor center before the storm.

It is important to build the blood supplies at hospitals across the state with local inventories already low due to summer shortages. All blood types are needed, especially type O and platelet donors.

Donating in advance supplies the hospitals and assures blood will be available to help those injured during or after the storm.

Donors must be 17 or older, or 16 with parental permission, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. A photo ID is also needed. Call LifeSouth’s toll-free number, 1-888-795-2707 or visit www.lifesouth.org to find the closest blood center or blood drive near you.

LifeSouth is a non-profit community blood center serving hospitals in Florida, Georgia and Alabama.
