Western Washington University students lined up Tuesday to donate blood, answering an urgent call following the Las Vegas massacre Sunday night.

A lone gunman killed at least 59 people and injured more than 500 – they were all attending a country music festival.

Bloodworks Northwest is partnering with Las Vegas-based United Blood Services, which said that while immediate needs for blood are being met, additional supplies will be needed.

Donors can schedule an appointment at schedule.bloodworksNW.org or by calling 800-398-7888.

Or go to BloodworksNW.org to find dates and times of mobile drives.

In Bellingham, Bloodworks has a donor center at 410 W. Bakerview Road, Suite 117.
