During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
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.
14 years or older

Weekends and evenings available.
The schedule to choose from is available 8 weeks in advance
