Blood donors asked to schedule appointments in coming days, weeks

You can help

Shawna Shaver said her daughter was in Las Vegas with friends for the weekend, staying at the Mandalay Bay Hotel, but left Sunday, right before the shooting. The Folsom Lake College Blood Drive is happening on Wednesday, October 4 & Thursday, October 5. Bloodmobiles will be onsite from 10am - 2pm by The Roost in the center of campus.

Donations in the coming days and weeks can also help, since blood is often in short supply, and people who were wounded in the shooting may need more blood, and undergo more treatments and surgeries, as time goes on. These services are available to survivors, family members and the Las Vegas community at large.

"So whether it's to our hospital associates or to a disaster or emergency, we feel like we can get blood to where it's needed".

"All of our centers are extremely busy today", said Mona Kleman, donor recruitment manager for United Blood Services. All donors will receive a Give A Pint of Hope T-Shirt and MyBloodSource Reward.

People can learn about blood donation and follow the need for donation on the blood center's web site. They are now encouraging people to make an appointment through their website.

"In any situation where blood transfusions are needed, it's the blood already on the shelf that saves lives", said Anne Burtchaell, division president of Bonfils. "It was devastating. It's so hard when it's in another country but then when it hits home- it's even more terrifying-so that motivated you to give blood", said blood donor Shannon Anderson. "So as soon as the need came in, we started shipping blood", said Wensday Tumulak, account manager for Virginia Blood Services. It can take 24 to 36 hours to collect, test, process and distribute blood where it's needed.

Blood donation organizations have a long list of criteria for deciding who is eligible to donate; they derive from FDA guidelines.
