American Red Cross - Minnesota Region

Transportation Specialist

Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. Help save lives by delivering Red Cross blood to area hospitals. You can be a hero, no cape needed! As a Transportation Specialist (Volunteer Driver), you will deliver or pick up blood products at locations throughout the Twin Cities metro area (or region if you like long drives).

The Red Cross will provide you with training and equipment, including use of a Red Cross marked vehicle. You get to go behind the scenes of local hospitals and Red Cross processing facilities. If you like being active, getting around the city and working with a crew of dedicated volunteers, this opportunity’s perfect for you!

Our biggest needs are for STAT runs (on call, on site just in time deliveries) and evening driving shifts.

For more information or to ask questions, contact Chris Buckley at mndakvolunteer@redcross.org or call Volunteer Services (612-626-7676 ext. 5).
