How to donate blood in INW after Las Vegas concert shooting

How to donate blood in INW after Las Vegas concert shooting”

The manager at Bonfils Blood Center said more than 600 people across 8 sites donated blood Monday.

Boulder's Bonfils center is located at 3113 28th St. They will process people who are already in line, take pledges and make appointments for the rest of the people who would like to donate.

The Richmond-based nonprofit asks Virginia residents to visit a blood donation center or a blood drive to help replenish the supply.

Blood Centers of the Pacific officials said the local blood donation system is part of a multistate system of blood centers that work in tandem to ensure blood is available when and where it's needed most. It's important to donate blood because there are situations that happen and occur randomly.

People in Colorado Springs are answering the call.

It's also possible that patients could be flown out to Stanford Hospital, blood center spokesman Loren Magana said.

"If we have the blood on the shelves then we are able to send it to our systems there in Las Vegas", said Diane Scott, United Blood Services. In times like this, they monitor supply across the country to make sure the blood supply gets to where it is needed.

"Our hearts go out to the victims, their families, and all those affected by this tragic event", said Jay Baumgardner, director of marketing and community relations at Blood Assurance. We strongly encourage donors to schedule a donation appointment by calling 877-UBS-HERO (877-827-4376) or by visiting bloodhero.com. They say they typically see an increase in blood donations after tragedies.
