Those interested in making a financial donation to support relief efforts can do so by visiting www.redcross.org/donate and selecting ‘I want to Support Disaster Relief.’ Donations can also be mailed to American Red Cross, 520 W 48th St, Kearney NE 69945. Your gift enables the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover from disasters big and small.
Financial donations allow the Red Cross to be flexible in using the funds to directly address the needs of those affected.
Heavy snow and flooding over the past weeks have caused the cancellation of more than 350 blood donations. If you're eligible to give, please visit RedCrossBlood.org to find a blood drive near you. Local blood needs are met first, but because the Red Cross is a national network, we are able to send blood wherever it is needed across the U.S. In our time of need, we are also able to get blood from donors outside of Nebraska and Iowa.
