It takes as little as 2 hours a month to be a Community Blood Center (CBC) volunteer. CBC is looking for volunteers who can share safe driving skills, an outgoing personality, foreign language fluency or administrative talents that help CBC provide blood, plasma and platelets to critically-ill family, friends and neighbors.
Community Blood Center is looking for dedicated individuals to volunteer as:
- DRIVERS delivering blood/plasma/platelets to regional hospitals and/or picking-up donations from blood drives (min age: 21) - COMMUNITY OUTREACH volunteers helping to register donors and set up donor appointments (min age: 14) - BLOOD DRIVE AMBASSADORS greeting and chatting with donors and assisting with refreshments (min age: 14) - SPANISH OR ASL INTERPRETERS help guide Spanish-speaking or hearing impaired donors through the process during blood drives (min age: 16) - DATA ENTRY & OFFICE ASSISTANCE volunteers who provide administrative assistance (min age: 16)
CBC volunteers must submit an application, participate in an interview & background screening and attend an orientation. Volunteer drivers must also pass a Motor Vehicle Record check and Distracted Driving exam, be comfortable driving in variable road conditions, have proper licensure (standard license in KS, Class E license in Missouri -- we will reimburse after 6 months of service) and complete a ride-along with an experienced volunteer.
A minimum commitment of 6 months of service is required. Couples or friends can drive as teams but both will have to complete the application requirements and training.
