UFC pledges $1 million to families of Las Vegas mass shooting; UFC 216 will go on as planned

Dozens of walk-in donors showed up at Bonfils Blood Center Monday after learning about the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas- ready to give blood. For families traveling to Las Vegas to assist those in need, we would like to offer free rooms.

Consul General Adelio Angelito Cruz said they are in touch with both Las Vegas police and leaders of the Filipino community to check on countrymen in the city. By comparison, last Monday 371 people registered to donate.

Gomez's former English teacher and cheer coach, Lupe Avila, said she was "wonderful young woman who had her whole life ahead of her".

In order to allow centers to catch up, officials encouraged people in the Las Vegas area to wait until at least Tuesday afternoon before trying to book a donation appointment.

"Any type of blood is needed". And within hours, a blood bank in Reno had a line out the door.

"One day is not going to fill up our blood blank... this is going to be today, tomorrow, the next day", local woman Brenda Logan said.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook out with knee injury
Dalvin Cook found the end zone for the Vikings for the first touchdown of the game and his second of the season. With Cook out, the Vikings will turn to Latavius Murray and Jerrick McKinnon to handle the rushing workload.

Call the American Red Cross at 1-800-RED CROSS to schedule an appointment or simply walk in.

"If you would like to donate blood for the injured victims of the Strip shooting visit the Labor Health & Welfare Clinic, 7135 W. Sahara". "And I feel like right now is just the time for everyone to come together and not be divided based on political beliefs".

Her friend Ruth Xiong came to donate blood, too.

The account was created with a goal of $3.5 million, and as of Tuesday morning more than $3.1 million had been donated.

But it emphasizes more is always needed when tragedy strikes.
