How to Help Las Vegas Shooting Victims:

Where to Donate Blood, Give Money and Call Your Representative

If waking up Monday to news of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history left you feeling angry or devastated, there’s a solution: take action.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement saying that residents should donate blood to the more than 400 people wounded when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire from his hotel room late Sunday.

Specifically, United Blood Services is set to start taking donations at 7 a.m. local time at 6930 West Charleston Boulevard in Las Vegas or 601 Whitney Ranch Drive in Henderson. The University Medical Center of Southern Nevada is also preparing to launch a blood drive Monday at the Delta Point Building, though the exact time of that event has not yet been announced.
