Help Us Help those affected by Hurricane Harvey

NEWARK, Del. – Blood Bank of Delmarva (BBD) is asking local residents to help it meet an URGENT request for over 2000 units of blood from our fellow blood banks in Texas and across the Gulf coast to deal with tragedy from Hurricane Harvey. Hurricane Harvey has impacted blood collection in Texas but patients still need blood and blood products to survive.

We are appealing to donors with O Positive, O Negative, A Negative and B Negative blood types to make a blood donation this week. We are also in need of Platelet donors as well.

The people of Texas will be counting on us over the next couple of weeks to support them during their time of critical need so please help.

Please call 1-888-8-BLOOD-8 or visit https://donate.bbd.org/ to BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TODAY. BBD officials would like to meet Texas’ request. Please refer a friend if you are unable to donate.

In addition, BBD’s ongoing Summer Blood Challenge lasts until Sept. 23.
