Two communities came together after two deadly shooting rampages outside Milwaukee.

Over the weekend, there was a blood drive to honor the victims of the Sikh temple shooting back in August. The temple president organized the blood drive and said it was meant to also remember the victims of last week’s shooting at a Milwaukee-area spa.

“We want the people at the Azana Salon to know that we feel their pain,” says Dr. Gurcharan Singh Grewal, President of the Sikh Religious Society of Wisconsin. “We've been through this. We know what it means. And we have the full support -- whatever we can do for them."

About 45 people donated blood.
