Heroes come in all shapes and sizes -- from blood donors to disaster action team members," Leigh Brock, regional communications director of the American Red Cross, said.
"All North Carolina and South Carolina blood collections were shut down completely for two days the week of the snow," Brock said. "On top of that, there have been snowstorms in other parts of the country since the beginning of the year. Overall, we've missed out on about 50,000 donations across the country. That's equivalent to the American Red Cross shutting down blood collection operations for three full days." There is always a need for donations, according to Brock. "All blood collections are welcome. There's no guarantee there won't be more winter storms that shut down blood collections again. All blood types are needed because so many donations were missed," Brock said.

Leigh Brock, regional communications director for the American Red Cross, said all of the funds to assist fire victims come from donor dollars.
She said her organization depends on the kindness of donors, both individual and corporate, to keep going and serve the community. What's offered to residents who are displaced depends on the situation, Brock said. "We take care of immediate, verified, disaster-caused needs," she said. "That may be food, shelter, clothing, seasonal items, like winter coats, health/mental health care, lost medications, comfort kits. ... The goal is to get them back on the road to recovery." Brock said some people refuse aid when they lose their homes but are glad to have someone show up and let them know they're not alone. The Red Cross takes care of needs people didn't realize they had, like a simple toothbrush. "After the initial event, we try to continue them on the road to recovery," Brock said.
