American Red Cross

  • 43 people are interested

Your help is needed! COVID-19 has temporarily disrupted normal life in many communities, but the need for blood hasn’t changed.

Every 2 seconds, someone in the US needs blood and one blood donation can save up to 3 lives. Help and support lives in North Carolina. Volunteer at the Blood Donation Center and blood drives in your community.

Blood Drive Volunteers:

  • Manage the reception process by ensuring each donor is warmly greeted and assisted with initial intake according to the appointment priority system
  • Ensure blood donors have relevant information and that questions are answered appropriately
  • Manage the hospitality experience by offering refreshments to donors, thanking them for their contribution, and alerting staff immediately if a donor shows signs of feeling unwell
  • This position is flexible as volunteers can sign up for shifts online that work their schedule.

Blood Drive Volunteers can also choose to assist as a Blood Donor Screener where they will take temperatures of all donors before they enter the Blood Center. Volunteers will be provided training PPE as necessary.

  • This position and Temp-taking screening station is part of additional screening the American Red Cross has implemented in the interest of the safety of the blood supply, recipients, other donors, staff, volunteers and general public health regarding COVID-2019 outbreaks.

If you reside in a "stay-at-home" or "shelter in place" area, blood collection staff and volunteers are considered essential. You are permitted to go to/from blood drives if you choose to help. You will be provided with Red Cross identification. Additional details will be provided upon completion of the application process.

Several enhanced blood donations protocols have been implemented in the interest of the safety of the blood supply, recipients, other donors, staff, volunteers and general public health.
