Hurricane Irma has forced the cancellation of approximately 80 American Red Cross blood drives in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, resulting in more than 2,100 uncollected blood and platelet donations.

  • We expect additional blood drive cancellations in the Southeast over the coming days and fewer donors to come out to donate at drives in and around affected areas due to poor weather conditions.
  • Ahead of the storm, the Red Cross sent additional blood products to areas of the Southeast including Puerto Rico likely to be impacted by the storm and we are prepared to send more to ensure patient needs continue to be met.
  • Through our national inventory system, the Red Cross has the ability to move blood around the country to wherever and whenever it is needed most.

We encourage eligible donors in parts of the country unaffected by Hurricane Irma to give blood or platelets to help ensure a sufficient blood supply.

  • Platelet and type O blood donations are especially needed right now.
  • The Red Cross depends on generous volunteer blood donors to provide lifesaving blood for those in need – each and every day – not only during times of disaster.
