Hurricane Sandy - How You Can Help

Posted: Updated:

Hurricane Sandy Relief

Our hearts go out to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The response to Sandy is very large
and very costly and the Red Cross needs your help now.

The American Red Cross has issued an urgent need for immediate blood
and platelet donations as well as monetary donations.

How You Can Help Now

To Donate:

Go to redcross.org.
Call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
Text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Contributions may also be sent to your local Red Cross chapter:

3950 Calle Fortunada
San Diego, CA 92123

Your gift enables the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, emotional support
and other assistance to those affected.

Blood Shortage:

More than 325 American Red Cross blood drives were cancelled as result of this storm, so we'd like people in the San Diego area to visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment. There are many blood drives in the San Diego area this week to choose from, visit sdbloodbank.org.

    If you've ever been stuck sitting in traffic, you've probably seen motorcyclists cutting through lanes and whizzing by. It's a move called lane-splitting, and while it's potentially dangerous, it's perfectly legal.
