Tropical Storms Irene and Lee have caused many problems here in the Northeast. Not only did it cause flooding and destruction thoughout the area. It also caused the cancellation of many blood drives.

According to the Times Union, 145 blood drives were cancelled during the times of these storms and many hospitals are running low on blood for those who absolutely need it the most.  This is a slow time for blood drives so something needs to be done and you can help. Simply check out all the info that you need at Redcrossblood.org.

I know our listeners love to help their fellow man (or woman). Thanks to you we raised $30,000 for the flood victims. I know many of you can help out the Red Cross in this way too.
