The American Red Cross Southern Nevada Chapter began accepting food and water donations after a devastating mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night.

However, the City of Henderson, Henderson police, and Clark County officials say that the Red Cross is no longer accepting donations "due to an overwhelming response."

The Red Cross is currently set for volunteers and supplies at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and will not accept donations at their 1771 East Flamingo Road location. 

Clark County officials advise that there may be openings for donations and volunteers in the future.

Blood is still needed, and anyone who wishes to donate may visit redcross.org/give-blood.

Anyone who wants to donate material items can direct those donations to Deseret Industries or Goodwill.
