It’s been a tough year for the Red Cross. Early in 2011, extreme snow and cold caused a lot of emergencies in the northeast. Then fires, tornadoes, flooding and now Hurricane Irene wreaks havoc along the eastern seaboard. "Everybody has probably friend or family on the east coast who have been affected one way or another by this massive hurricane. So people in Oregon can help by giving blood. Right now there is a shortage of blood. Right now there is a shortage of blood because of the disruption of blood supplies on the east coast and the fact that lots and lots of blood collection campaigns have to suspend services." American Red Cross spokesperson James Roddey says they give help to anyone free of charge. Coffers and blood supplies need your help. There are a number of Central Oregonians who are deployed to the northeast to help with disaster relief services.
