Those in the Las Vegas area are asked to donate blood to help the hundreds injured in the shooting.
“Anyone wishing to help is asked to donate blood for the injured victims of the Strip shooting,” the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement on Monday.“United Blood Services will start taking donations at 7 a.m. at two locations: 6930 W. Charleston in Las Vegas or 601 Whitney Ranch Drive in Henderson.”
″UMC will also be hosting a blood drive in conjunction with United Blood Services. It will be held at UMC’s Delta Point Building located at 901 N. Rancho Lane. There will be updates as to the exact time of the blood drive as more information is available.”
People began lining up to donate in the early morning hours Monday before some locations even opened.
Those unable to donate blood can give money to organizations helping the victims. Newsweek points to the Southern Nevada chapter of the American Red Cross, which accepts donations online, by phone at 702-369-3674, or by mail at 1771 E. Flamingo Road, #206B, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89119.
A GoFundMe set up by Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chair from Las Vegas, and other pages are being created to raise money for victims, as well.
The Mandalay Bay Resort tweeted Monday afternoon that it was in need of certified trauma counselors to help those in need.
