Donate Blood: The Las Vegas sheriff has requested that people donate blood. The universal blood type is O-. Here are places where a person can donate blood in Nevada:

Across the country, people should regularly donate blood if they are eligible to do so as supplies, especially of rarer blood types, can be quite limited. To find a blood drive near you, click here

If you are unable to donate, consider volunteering at a blood drive. 

Donate Money: The official GoFundMe for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting can be found here. The GoFundMe was started by Steve Sisolak, the Clark County Commission Chair. The funds from the GoFundMe will be used to assist the victims and their families of the shooting. 

I'm Steve Sisolak, Clark County Commission Chair from Las Vegas. We are raising funds to assist the victim's of the tragic Las Vegas shooting. I am at Clark County's only level-one trauma center with the victims and their families as we speak.

Funds will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific Las Vegas mass shooting.

The Red Cross of Southern Nevada also accepts donations on its website.
