Lane Blood Center is asking for donations in the aftermath of Thursday's shooting at Umpqua Community College.

Cynthia Vignos with Lane Blood Center says they are primarily seeking donors with O Negative and O Positive blood types.

Vignos: "Currently what we're asking from the community is that they can make an appointment to donate within the next couple weeks. People came down yesterday in large numbers and now our responsibility is to maintain an adequate blood supply which will take us a couple of weeks to build back up."

Eligible donors can call 541-484-9111 or visit laneblood.org to make an appointment. The center is also accepting food donations such as individual yogurts and small bags of chips and pretzels.
