At least 58 people have died and more than 500 were injured Sunday night after a gunman opened fire upon a crowd attending a country music festival in Las Vegas.

These numbers are likely to continue climbing, which means the demand for blood donations is at a crucial level.

There are six blood donation centers located in the Nevada area. Even if you don’t live close enough to personally give blood, it helps to share this information on your social media accounts.

There are several local organizations on the ground right now helping victims. The American Red Cross and Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada are just a couple assisting those in need. Most charities prefer cash donations because it allows them to determine which supplies are most needed.

Before you donate to an organization, you can verify its background through a charity monitoring organization like GiveWellCharity NavigatorCharity Watch, or the Better Business Bureau.


Government officials want people to be properly informed about the developing situation. There are already several hoaxes circulating on the internet, so be mindful of the content you share online.
