ST. PAUL (WCCO) — A St. Paul woman reached a major milestone for helping others: 100 gallons of donated blood.
On Tuesday, the American Red Cross honored Dolly Ruark for her enormous contribution.
Ruark first started donating in college in the 1960s.
She says donating blood is her way of paying rent for living on Earth and she’s proud to have helped save hundreds of lives.
Red Cross workers say Ruark feels like a member of the family and that she always brightens people’s days when she comes in.
