While the group isn’t taking food, clothing, or household item donations, you can donate blood.

The Red Cross-Wisconsin Region is asking anyone who is able to schedule an appointment to give blood or platelets.

Turnout for blood drives in the affected areas is expected to be low, so donations from unaffected areas are crucial.

The Red Cross is just one group working to help those affected by the tornadoes.
