Blood Donor Ambassador - Blood Drive Volunteer

Did you know on any given day 38% of people are eligible to donate blood? Do you know how many actually do? Only 8% of people donate blood

We need help creating a positive experience for those 8% of blood donors.

Would you like to help us keep our vital blood donors continuing to donate their blood by joining our volunteer team of donor ambassadors?

As a donor ambassador at our blood drives and/or donor centers help to provide a warm and friendly greeting, assist with reception and hospitality at blood drives and enhance the blood donor experience. The importance is to provide the blood donors with a positive experience and encourage to donate regularly.

Great opportunity to meet some incredible people...our blood donors and staff. Also an interesting way to be part of local companies and organizations who host blood drives.

· Training provided
· Flexible hours of 3-4 hour shifts to choose from
· Available blood drives to choose from are typically during the day Monday - Friday. Weekends and evenings available.
· The schedule to choose from is available 8 weeks in advance
