Long lines to donate blood in Las Vegas

Long lines to donate blood in Las Vegas”

Throughout the country, people are doing their part to help by donating blood. Bonfils Blood Center at Austin Bluffs Pkwy and N Academy Blvd stayed open an hour after closing time Monday to take donations. Monday, they are dealing with heavy traffic from people looking to make a difference.

Carter Blood Center in Tyler says that so far, the blood banks in Nevada are handling the need and are being flooded with donations.

Joe Ayer, Senior Manager Donor Recruitment and Hospital Services for BloodSource Shasta said blood banks will normally see an influx of donors after a large incident like this.

Locally, we need approximately 200 units of blood each day so replenishing our depleted supply is important.

While the center accepts walk-ins, appointments are strongly recommended.

"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. The blood donations collected here are not now expected to be needed in Las Vegas due to their suppliers and the massive donations made in Las Vegas, but blood banks try to always be prepared.

"There is no guarantee this is going to help someone in Las Vegas but people are people everywhere so if it will help somebody here, that's cool", said Dave Lucitt, another donor. "However, to effectively manage the blood supply for patients, we are asking donors to make appointments to give blood throughout the coming days and weeks", said Kevin Adler, another spokesman for Blood Centers of the Pacific.
