Here's how to help those injured in the Uvalde school shooting

At least 21 people died in the Robb Elementary School shooting, including 19 children and two teachers.

UVALDE, Texas — There are several ways you can help the victims of the Uvalde mass shooting.

The city of Uvalde is accepting donations to support victims. Those who wish to contribute can send a check payable to Robb School Memorial Fund to P.O. Box 799, Uvalde, Texas 78802 or to 200 E Nopal Street. The city is working to set up an online donation option.

The Community Foundation of the Texas Hill Country is accepting donations for the family.  The organization is a charity that supports nonprofits in the region. 

Victims of Tuesday's mass shooting are in need of assistance and two blood drives have been set up so far for Texans looking to donate.

The University Health system, based out of San Antonio, says its donor rooms have availability for the next several days.

More information on how you can donate is available on their website.

Folks around Houston are also asked to donate blood as the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center works closely with the Blood and Tissue Center.

While blood hasn't been requested, they say this tragedy highlights the importance of always having blood available.
