If you haven't donated blood recently, you can help the victims of Sunday night's mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Richard Myers, a Bellefonte resident, said he has been donating blood and palettes for about 10 years on a regular basis.

OBI said the current supply at their Tulsa facility is robust, and they are ready to send out units if asked. And show up they did.

"It can be very frustrating not being able to help and certainly this is one of those that most everyone can do, they can give blood".

People are also being encouraged to donate to the American Red Cross, which accepts donations on its website, by phone in the USA at 702-369-3674 or via mail at 1771 East Flamingo Road, #206B, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89119.

The long lines of people waiting to donate in the state caused the Nevada Department of Public Safety to issue an alert about making reservations to donate blood.
