Looking for a flexible volunteer opportunity that makes a life-saving difference? As a Community Blood Center Flex-Schedule Volunteer Driver, you will periodically deliver blood to hospitals with urgent supply needs in areas outside of the KC Metro. Ideal for volunteers who have good driving records, enjoy being on the road for several hours and looking for a flexible volunteer schedule.
We provide the training, vehicle, fuel, candy bars and fun -- you bring the good driving skills, time and dedication. Families, couples and friends are welcome to work as teams of 2. Join us today!
Schedules are flexible --- we will only call you on the days/times you tell us you are generally available. Most deliveries take 2-to-5 hours, round-trip. We ask that you try to help at least one time per month for a minimum of six months. Deliveries generally take place Mon-Fri sometime between 7:00am - 7:00pm. (NOTE: We also have regular weekend driving shifts for volunteers only available on weekends and willing to commit to a regular shift.)
To become a Flex-Schedule Driver for Life, you would need to be at least 21 years of age, able to lift 35 lbs.. You must complete an application, participate in an interview, background/MVR check and attend training and a ride-along. State law requires Missouri residents get/have a Class E license or higher (if you need to get a Class E we reimburse the cost after 6 months of service). Kansas law only requires a standard drivers license. Couples can volunteer together but both need to complete training.

We'll work with your schedule.
