Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Locals did their part Sunday to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The U.S. Coast Guard in Las Vegas spearheaded a blood drive, along with the American Red Cross.
It was held Sunday afternoon on Cheyenne Avenue.
The two groups wanted to provide a way for locals to help out the East Coast, and help with the blood shortage.
"There were 300 bus appointments that had to be canceled for blood drives in the East Coast, and that's why we're here, to make up that 300 bus deficit," said Mark Himes, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.
