Hospitals Urged to Contribute to Hospital Staff Affected by Hurricane

In addition, blood donations can be made in California and designated for Texas, to help with the general disaster relief effort. To specify a blood donation for the Hurricane Harvey-affected communities, please use the Texas Hurricane Donor Club number 0687.
