Local blood being sent to Florida in hurricane's aftermath

The blood you give today will be helping those in search of it in Florida after Hurricane Ian's landfall earlier this week. The Community Blood Center, which works with Door County Medical Center, is urging those who can to schedule a blood donation in the coming days. Hurricane season is expected to have an even more significant impact on hospitals and clinics in the southeastern United States that are dealing with low blood supplies. Community Blood Center Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Operations Kristine Belanger says it is moments like these where their nationwide network gets the opportunity to shine.

All healthy and eligible blood donors are encouraged to schedule a blood or platelet donation in the coming days. Donation appointments can be scheduled at communityblood.org. The efforts to help those impacted by Hurricane Ian will not affect the blood supply reserved for local patients.
