Blood Assurance On Standby To Help Partners In Las Vegas Area

El Paso blood donations headed to Las Vegas

(Central Coast, CA) - Our sister United Blood Services blood center in Las Vegas has provided almost 200 units of blood and blood products so far to area hospitals treating victims of the concert shooting last night.

An outpouring of support in blood donors following Sunday's Las Vegas music festival massacre has overwhelmed Houchin Community Blood Bank.

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. She said she pulled over in Santa Maria and made a decision to give blood for the first time.

"You just feel bad for everyone involved, so if you can do a little something to help, that's always nice", said Heidi Welsh. To make the process as quick as possible, fill out the Fast Track Health Sheet before you arrive, and be sure to bring a photo ID.

A GoFundMe account has also been created to assist victims and their families.
