Help Save Lives as a Volunteer Greeter at Local Blood Drives #COVID19 - Jefferson City, MO

Save to Favorites

American Red Cross of Missouri and Arkansas


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 your help in creating a positive experience for those 8% of blood donors.

As a volunteer donor ambassador at our blood drives and/or donor centers, you will help to provide a warm and friendly greeting, take the temperatures as they enter, 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.

Every day, blood donors help patients of all ages: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those battling cancer. In fact, every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. During #COVID19, life's emergencies haven’t stopped - and neither does the work of the American Red Cross. You can help! Be part of our mission to support blood drives and you can help save lives.
