Pence donates blood 'to raise awareness for those in need in Las Vegas'

@VP/Twitter(WASHINGTON) -- Mike Pence is a roll-his-sleeves-up kind of guy.

The Vice President visited a United Blood Services blood donation center in Phoenix Tuesday "to raise awareness for those in need in Las Vegas," he tweeted, referring to Sunday night's shooting massacre by suspected gunman Stephen Paddock which left 58 people dead, plus Paddock.

"Inspiring to see others donating blood in Arizona to help those hurt in the Las Vegas shooting," Pence wrote in another tweet. "We are one nation and one people united."

Pence is no stranger to donating blood. In June he was among several lawmakers on Capitol Hill who donated blood in honor of the victims of the shooting at a congressional baseball practice at an Alexandria, Virginia, park.
