5 people are interested
Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center is excited to Help Save Lives in the Peoria area. As of March 1, 2019, MVRBC is the sole supplier of blood products to OSF St. Francis Medical Center, Peoria. We are investing in your community by opening a Distribution Center (March 2019). Next we will begin mobile operations and hiring more Peoria residents. In the fall we plan to invest again and open a donor center in Peoria. We need to collect whole blood and platelets in Peoria to help ensure a strong blood supply for the patients we serve.
Mobile Pickup Drivers: Volunteer drivers are needed to pickup blood at various mobile blood drives in the Peoria area and transport it to our Davenport, Iowa lab for testing and distribution back to our service hospitals. Flexible days and times. Mileage is reimbursed.
Drivers may also help in the future w/Site Pickups when our donor center opens. We also have some 'on call' needs when a specimen needs to be delivered to our Reference Lab in Springfield, IL.
Orientation and Training held in Peoria. Driver Shirt and Sweatshirt provided for Volunteer.
