The Oregon Red Cross is standing by with more volunteers ready to help thousands of victims of hurricane Sandy.  Sixteen volunteers from Oregon left for the East Coast on Saturday and more are waiting for the word to go.
 
Eric Corliss, the Chief Operating Officer for the Oregon Red Cross, says citizens who also want to help can give blood.  He explains that with an entire region of the country impacted - they'll really need to fill the gap with blood donations from the rest of the country. 
 
 
 "THE NEXT WAY RIGHT NOW IS TO GET INVOLVED AND DONATE FINANCIALLY -WE HAVE DEPLOYED ABOUT 13 HUNDRED DISASTER WORKERS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO JOIN THE LOCAL FOLKS THAT ARE AFFECTED SO PEOPLE HAVE THE FOOD TO EAT - COTS TO SLEEP ON - MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT- WE HAVE PROFESSIONAL NURSES - ALL OF THAT IS FUELED BY THE GENEROUSITY OF THE AMERICAN PUBLIC."
 

"THESE STORMS ARE CAUSING BLOOD DONATIONS TO BE CANCELED ACROSS THE EAST COAST- IT'S JUST NOT SAFE TO BE OUTSIDE- WHEN YOU TAKE OUT THIS LARGE GEOGRAPHICAL AREA AND WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO DO IS GIVE BLOOD- AND HOW THIS WORKS IS IF ONE AREA'S BLOOD SUPPLY GOES DOWN ITS INCUMBENT ON THE REST OF THE COUNTRY TO  STEP UP AND ROLL UP THEIR SLEEVES AND GIVE."

 
To give cash you can call 1-800-RED-CROSS, or visit the website, www.redcross.org.
