(KLFY) — LifeShare Blood Center is urging eligible blood donors to give blood or plasma ahead of the expected landfall of Tropical Depression Nine, as the organization expects that upcoming blood drives will be canceled due to severe weather.

“It’s important to remember that regardless of the weather, thousands of people in our communities are depending on the blood and plasma we collect in order to save lives. This is especially important during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said LifeShare’s Director of Marketing and Communications, Kourtney Washington.

Before travel conditions become hazardous, donors are implored to schedule a donation appointment through https://www.lifeshare.org/give.
