Cumberland man marks his 100th donated gallon of blood

September 18, 2015

PROVIDENCE – Cumberland resident Joe Palithorpe donated his first pint of blood when he was just a 22-year-old member of the Army National Guard in 1963. Some people were in a severe need for blood donations, so they reached out to the troops to see if they would donate. From that very moment in his life, Palithorpe made it a priority in his life to donate as frequently as medically possible.

“I don’t play golf, so I spend the same time people spend playing golf here,” he said.
