GREEN BAY - A Green Bay man is making a difference one gallon at a time.
Bill Waerzeggers donated his 100th gallon of platelets Friday. He says he began donating in 1970.
His blood type is O-, which means anyone can take his blood.
Waerzeggers says he donates every two weeks. He started donating blood and then switched to platelets.
"I think there was a more desire for me to help out a different facet of people who are in need of red blood cells or platelets. The platelets I give go to cancer and leukemia patients and it's their, it's realistically one of their last chances to survive the disease that they have unfortunately been blessed with," said Waerzeggers.
Red Cross officials say 38 percent of people are eligible to donate blood; however, only eight percent actually do.
