(Tallahassee, FL August 26, 2012) We are urging Tallahassee area residents to donate blood today before Isaac moves into the area.
The blood center is operating and we are asking all eligible donors to visit a bloodmobile or stop in at one of our branch locations and donate today while weather conditions are still favorable in our area.
Blood centers have had to cease operations in most of South Florida due to Isaac's impact and it is highly likely Isaac will impact collections in North Florida as the storm moves closer. The time to donate is now!
All blood types are urgently needed especially Rh negative blood types and platelets.
Any person who is eligible to donate is encouraged to do so now, before the storm.
