In the wake of this tragedy donors appeared in waves showing just how close of a community Las Vegas really is. The amount of local support has been overwhelming and really has shown the best of humanity. But did you know that blood has a shelf life? The shelf life of red blood cells is around 42 days. With many injured still in hospitals and some still with long roads to recovery the importance of these blood donations has not subsided. It is important that these blood donations continue on an ongoing basis. United Blood Services is asking donors to make appointments to give blood throughout the coming days and weeks.
