Volunteers: needed for Long Island blood drives
Long Island Blood Services/New York Blood Center
Without volunteers it would be difficult for us to achieve our goal of providing blood to our local hospitals on Long Island.
Volunteers are an integral part of the donation process. They welcome donors, help with registration, serve refreshments and assist our staff to ensure that blood donors have a pleasant donation experience. Volunteer opportunities exist for mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends throughout Suffolk, Nassau and Queens. Our volunteers are asked to help at two or more blood drives each month, for a shift of about 3 hours at a time. They are given a schedule to choose the drives that are most convenient to their lifestyle.
All volunteers are required to attend a training class before they begin.
