In the wake of the storm's aftermath, residents need our help.

Red Cross officials report more than 140 blood drives have been canceled through early next week due to Hurricane Florence, resulting in over 4,200 uncollected blood and platelet donations.

34 people have died as a result of Hurricane Florence, 26 of them in North Carolina.

GoFundMe has created a page of all campaigns related to Hurricane Florence. So we do have volunteers who are willing to deploy later this week.

The American Red Cross is preparing for a large relief effort across multiple states as Hurricane Florence continues its march toward the East Coast.

American Red Cross volunteers from Texoma are on standby as the Texas Gulf is expected to face a tropical depression. Rangers from Arizona are working with urban search and rescue teams in North Carolina. "We have stores in these affected areas, so we know many Kroger customers and associates have been personally affected".

Boots on the ground include David Anderson from the American Red Cross of Northeast Florida.

Steve Wise, a Red Cross volunteer from New Lenox, is at the university helping out.

Another important donation, blood donations!

Apple routinely supports relief efforts following natural disasters and usually accepts Red Cross donations from customers through the App Store or iTunes Store.
