Capital area Red Cross welcoming blood donations for Las Vegas

Capital area Red Cross welcoming blood donations for Las Vegas”

The requested blood, particularly universal donor Type O-negative, will likely go to replenish regional reserves that are now headed to Las Vegas hospitals where victims were taken, said Kent Corley, a spokesman for Blood Centers of the Pacific. We're also humbled to see the love and tremendous support our fellow Central Texans show when devastation strikes.We've already begun to see an outpouring of support from our local community members who want to do anything they can to help our neighbors across the country.

"United Blood Services has three centers in Las Vegas that have been open since early this morning".

"We work in tandem, moving lifesaving donations throughout the system to help ensure blood is available when and where it's needed most", said Virginia Blood Services on Facebook. Many are doing that by donating blood. Thinking ahead to future blood needs in the community is important because blood products have a limited shelf life - 42 days for red blood cells and five days for platelets, so it must be constantly replenished, UBS said in a statement. Spacing donations out by organizing them through appointments is the best way for us to do that.

Rather than donating now, UBS is encouraging donors to schedule an appointment by calling 877-UBS-HERO (877-827-4376) or online at bloodhero.com.
