What Is It and Why Is It Needed?

You would help to provide a warm and friendly greeting to our blood donors. As you welcome them, you will take their temperatures with a no-touch thermometer, assist with reception and hospitality and enhance the blood donor experience.

Blood drives with volunteer greeters are more successful, run smoother and collect more blood because the staff can focus on taking care of the donors and collecting more blood or platelets. This means more lives are saved because of you! The importance of this role is to provide the blood donors with a positive experience and encourage them to donate regularly.

Must be 18 years or older, please.

  • Be in a safe environment helping your community
  • Gain valuable training and experience while providing an invaluable service to your community
