If you want to help this is a simple and very effective way to do it! "So what do you do?"

Sadly, not everyone who wanted to help has been able to.

To donate, contact the blood center at 800-452-1097 or visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org and use code 5032 to locate the drive.

That's because blood only has a shelf life of 42 days and it's crucial those donations get used! 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. "We are in communications with the hospitals in the area to assess addition need for blood and blood product in the event they need them, we will be sending them" said Donor Recruitment Representative Teresa Johnson.

"Just a reminder gay people are still not allowed to donate blood unless you're a homosexual who hasn't had sex in a year like Mike Pence", another wrote, acerbically.

Donation centers need all blood types, especially O-positive and O-negative. You can make an appointment by calling 616-2505 or make an appointment at Houchin's website.
