South Georgia blood donations to help Las Vegas victims

The death toll keeps rising after Sunday night's shooting on the Las Vegas strip.

The verified crowd-funding campaign to which the team contributed had raised almost $2.8 million by 10 p.m. Monday to aid victims and their families.

The UFC will donate £750,000 ($1m) to the families affected by yesterday's mass shooting in Las Vegas.

"In any situation where blood transfusions are needed, it's the blood already on the shelf that saves lives", Bonfils Division President Anne Burtchaell said in a statement.

The suspect, identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, was found dead in his Mandalay Bay hotel room Monday in an apparent suicide. By comparison, last Monday 371 people registered to donate.


A San Diego Blood Bank spokesperson said at 10 a.m. the blood bank had not received a request to send blood to Las Vegas.

An online fundraising campaign for victims of the Las Vegas shooting has raised more than $1 million.

Blood donation centers around the city have been swamped with long lines of people desperate to help those injured by the deadly shooting and in need of blood transfusions. Bonfils Blood Center at Austin Bluffs Pkwy and N Academy Blvd stayed open an hour after closing time Monday to take donations. It may not help the people particularly in Las Vegas but it could certainly help someone here in our community. "Working people will continue to come together to do all that we can to provide resources to the victims and help our community through this very bad ordeal".

"The only way that we can help other communities is if we are able to meet the needs of our communities first", she said.
