OneBlood, the blood center responding in Orlando, has put out an urgent nationwide request for blood. Bonfils Blood Center has gotten a lot of inquiries from Coloradans on how they can be of assistance.

Blood centers across the country are experiencing shortages currently due to several factors, including the drop in donations that typically occurs in the summer months. Donors across the country are encouraged to give to their local blood centers.

If you would like to donate in honor of the #OrlandoShooting victims, make an appointment at any of Bonfils' donor centers and mention group #7300.
