How to help those affected by Orlando mass shooting

The world is mourning the loss of all the victims that died in Sunday’s worst mass shooting in the history of the United States.

In response to Sunday’s mass shooting in Orlando, the Red Cross issued a statement asking any eligible individuals who want to help donate blood to make an appointment in the coming weeks and months.

To make an appointment, you can use the Red Cross Blood Donor App, call 1-800-RED CROSS, or click here.

On Sunday night, over a hundred people gathered at Seitz Park, their solidarity bringing a feeling of hope to a devastated nation.

If you weren’t able to attend the vigil at Seitz Park on Sunday night, there are several other events happening in both Michigan and Indiana on Monday and throughout the week.
