The blood center will have several mobile drives in the coming days to make sure enough is on hand.

“Historically, LifeShare donors have turned out to help after major events like September 11th, Hurricane Katrina, and other disasters,” said LifeShare Regional Director Bobby Carney. “But it’s the blood on the shelves before the rain begins to fall that helps save lives during and after the storm.”

All donations will be tested before it is used.
