In comparison to weight, 35 gallons is just under 292 pounds.
Back in 2017, the Blood Bank team was able to celebrate blood donor Dale Faughn as he was inducted into the Guinness World Records book for being the oldest regular blood donor.
When asked why he feels blood donations are important, Faughn said, "Blood is life. I grew up poor, but blood is something that anyone can give. I believe it is better to give than receive."
