Blood donations, especially platelets are needed. Platelets are urgent because they only last for five days, compared to blood which can last for 42 days. The Oakland Raiders who are playing the New Orleans Saints this weekend here in CA, are having a blood drive before the game. I'm sure there will be other places/events doing the same across the country.

The Washington Post has links to helping find people missing in the hurricane.
