Published by Kirby Winn on Friday, November 15, 2019 in Blog Bud has been a volunteer with the ImpactLife (Formerly MVRBC) Donor Center in Burlington, Iowa for 15 years (and more than 3,200 hours) as a sealer. He also assists in the canteen area when needed. He has donated more than 55 gallons of blood and platelets. A big factor in his decision to be a platelet donor was his sister’s passing due to leukemia in 1953. He plans to donate for as long as he’s able. Bud is retired from the Iowa Army Ammunition Plant in Electrical Maintenance and keeps busy by also volunteering at the New London Care Center, Dover Historical Society Museum and Board, and at his church. Married for 58 years to his wife Karen, Bud says that she has been a big help with everything he tries to accomplish. “I enjoy volunteering at the blood center, visiting with donors and giving the staff a bad time. I love them all!” said Bud.
