Helping the victims of Las Vegas by donating blood

ROANOKE, Va. - About ten minutes in the chair is all it takes to save three lives and help those still suffering in Las Vegas. 

The biggest need right now they say is blood and here locally you can help. 

Virginia Blood Services through their network of partners has already sent blood to Las Vegas to help victims in desperate need. 

They want to remind people the whole process only takes about an hour and you are physically giving blood for about ten minutes. 

The process is simple.

You can make an appointment, they will ask you a couple of questions, give you a quick physical, if eligible, you will give blood, then that is it. 

They say it's important in times of tragedy that people really step up to make sure there is enough blood supply to save lives.

There are blood drives in our area, to find out more how you can help, you can head to this website: http://www.vablood.org/
