How you can help victims of Hurricane Sandy

BloodSource, a blood bank that operates a donor center at 6385 Pacific Ave., Stockton, has shipped a significant number of platelets – with a five-day shelf life – to blood centers in the East unable to operate due to power outages, flooding and transportation problems. It is seeking the public’s help in providing a consistent supply of blood products, including platelets, Type O red blood cells (universal) and Type AB blood from males for plasma donations. Walk-ins are welcome, while appointments can be scheduled at (866) 822-5663.
