Peter

Saint Petersburg, Florida

Peter’s commitment to service started in his teens.

He began donating in high school when his father, a St. Petersburg Police Officer, took him to the local blood center to donate for a fellow officer who had been in a serious accident.

Donating with his dad that first time started a lifelong habit that extended through his career in the Navy and later in the reserves.

Peter

Peter has AB positive blood, which makes him a great candidate for platelet donations. He switched from donating whole blood to platelets and now Peter donates every two weeks.

Peter is retired, but he actively serves and gives back to his community by donating.  Through decades of donating, Peter reached the 125 gallon milestone saving thousands of lives and he’s still going strong!
