How to Donate Blood in Orlando in the Wake of the Pulse Nightclub Shooting

In the aftermath of the mass shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Floridians lined up in droves to donate blood to the more than 50 wounded — survivors among the estimated 50 killed — in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.

For anyone living in the Orlando area who wants to help victims of the massacre by donating blood, Equality Florida, a civil rights organization that works to ensure the equality of Florida's LGBT communities, listed a number of donation centers in the area accepting blood on its Facebook page.

The Guardian also reported that the following locations were accepting donations:

Oviedo Donor Center, 1954 W. State Road 426, Oviedo, FL 32765

Asbury United Methodist Church - Bloodmobile 220, West Horatio Avenue, Maitland, FL 32751

St. Luke's United Methodist Church – Bloodmobile, 4851 S. Apopka Vineland Road, Orlando, FL 32819

Metro Church – Bloodmobile, 1491 East State Road 434, Winter Springs, FL 32708

O-, O+ and AB blood types are in particular demand.
