According to CNN, there has been an outpouring of support from the local El Paso community after the gun massacre at a Walmart in a shopping centre in the city.
"The line just continues and continues to grow", Frances Yepez, a local blood donor, told CNN.
"It's quiet. The TV is on and a local station is providing updates. People are sniffling (crying) some are upset. I was at home. My son called me as he was at work. I quickly called my other son who works at the mall in one of the kiosks and luckily he was off and at home. I have a group text with my immediate family and everyone checked in. And my extended family has a group text and we all let everyone know we were ok", Yepez told CNN
Earlier on Saturday El Paso police made an urgent statement asking for blood donations.
