COLUMBIA - The American Red Cross for the Missouri-Illinois Region encouraged Mid-Missourians Tuesday to donate blood to help those affected by superstorm Sandy. More than 300 American Red Cross blood drives along the east coast were cancelled due to the superstorm, leaving the blood supply in the area low. 

Columbia Donor Recruitment Representative Craig Jackson said local blood donation centers will make sure to meet local needs first before sending blood to the east coast. 

Jackson said he hopes for a better turnout than usual at upcoming area blood drives. Although, he said the turnout at a blood drive he held today was average.

Jackson said it's crucial for area residents to come to one of the following upcoming blood drives to help those affected by Sandy. He also added he's interested in finding someone willing to hold a blood drive Sunday. Anyone interested should call Jackson at 573-489-2450.
