About Coy Craver
Coy Craver was everyone’s friend and a special friend of the Red Cross. There’s a saying at the Red Cross that “if you can’t donate your blood, donate your time”. Coy donated his time for over 15 years with the Red Cross as a volunteer. He organized blood drives in the area and he did it all at those drives from recruiting donors to meeting and greeting everyone to cooking pinto beans and fried cornbread. At these drives he met new friends and greeted everyone with a smile and may have even told a story or two. Towards the end of his life, Coy was a recipient of the very blood products he helped collect for all those years…Because of donors, like you, Coy got more time with his loved ones…Please come give, so others can get more time with their loved ones, as Coy did.
