Shevlin man donates seventh gallon of blood
The first time Larry Schmidt donated blood, he was forced to do it.
But now, he does it willingly - and often.
Schmidt, 59, of Shevlin recently eclipsed the seven-gallon mark for blood donations with the Mississippi Headwaters Blood Bank.
Once every two months, Schmidt goes to North Country Regional Hospital, checks in, and donates a pint of blood.
