The horrific, senseless event in Las Vegas on Sunday night leaves many of us wondering how we can help. The best way Salt Lake County residents can support those who endured this tragedy, is by donating blood to the Red Cross. Donations will be used to help victims and replenish the Red Cross’s blood supply.
There are a number of blood drives happening in Salt Lake County. Just visit the
American Red Cross website and enter your zip code to locate the nearest place to donate. You can also download the
Red Cross’ Blood Donor App to find your nearest location and schedule an appointment.
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone at the concert last night, as well as the victims’ families. I am grateful for law enforcement, first responders, and hospital staff caring for those injured.
I am also grateful that so many Utahns are searching for a way to help.
