CHICO, Calif. - One man will make his 400th blood donation this year since starting in 1964.
Veteran Charlie Rollo moved to Paradise twenty years ago and says this is how he can give back after the Camp Fire took so much.
Rollo joined the local police force when he moved to the area and has continued to advocate for the life-saving gift of blood.
"Think about saving someone's life," Rollo said. "How great is that?"
