FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): If you’re looking to help the victims of the early Sunday morning terror attack in Orlando, you could try giving blood.

Local branches of the American Red Cross don’t typically serve hospitals in the Orlando area, but our partners in news at 21Alive report they are sending some blood donation products to the area in response to the shooting, with plans to send more if need be.

The Red Cross adds that even if your donation doesn’t end up being sent to Florida, it can save up to three lives locally.

Thousands so far have donated after a man who claimed to be affiliated with ISIS barged into a gay nightclub and opened fire, killing 49 and wounding 53.

The attack has been denounced by local Islamic leaders.
