Cash, blood donations needed most in West

Posted: Updated:

Organizations helping with relief efforts in West, Texas say what is needed most right now are donations of blood and donations of cash.

Rangers fans can give both at Sunday's game against the Mariners in Arlington.

A blood donation facility will be set up near the stadium's Hall of Fame area until 3PM.

North Texans gave bins full of household supplies, and other necessities, for victims in West during weekend games.

The Red Cross and Salvation Army say cash donations are always helpful, too.

In the meantime, some individuals are taking it upon themselves to raise money for the victims.

A local musician raised close to nine hundred dollars.

Nicholas McCord performed at a restaurant in Arlington Saturday night.

He said he would donate all tips to the relief effort.

He was hoping for about three hundred dollars, but patrons stepped up, and McCord ended up with nearly triple that amount.

He says he will travel to West to personally deliver the money.
