CHARLESTON, Ill. (WAND) - Donating blood is a common way that people give back to help people in need, but what isn't common is donating 45 gallons of blood.

Bob Whittenbarger and Donald Schaefer have both been donating blood since the 1950's and as of Sunday, both men donated 45 gallons of blood each. Both veterans say servicing those who are less fortunate has always been important to them. 

Each time the men donate blood they donate a pint each. With eight pints in a gallon: these men have at least donated blood 360 times each.
