Image_202203110753

Are you a friendly, well-organized and enthusiastic person who can represent the Red Cross at local blood drives? If so, you can help save lives by volunteering to help at local blood drives!

The Red Cross collects and distributes about 40 percent of our nation's blood supply. Volunteer blood donor ambassadors ensure that blood donors have a pleasant and rewarding experience from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave. During the blood drive, whether you are greeting donors, answering questions or thanking them for their donation, your courtesy and professionalism will create a favorable impression that encourages ongoing donor support.

You will need to meet these important qualifications:

  • Model excellent customer service behaviors
  • Learn and share the Red Cross story, including the mission, vision, and values
  • Provide customer service to donors in the Hospitality Area by ensuring that each donor is recognized for his/her contribution
  • Willingness to comply with Red Cross COVID-19 policies.
  • Must be over the age of 16
  • Ability to display the utmost professionalism and communication skills
  • Extremely comfortable working with people from diverse communities and backgrounds
  • Comfortable with technology to help donors sign in and ability to explain/teach technology to donors and fellow volunteers
  • Ability to regularly commit to schedule, arrive punctually and adapt to a change driven culture
When you sign up for a shift to volunteer (minimum of 1 shift of 5 to 6 hours per month required), you are creating a meaningful donation experience for our donors plus nurturing an environment for a long term commitment for regular blood donations. Each shift you volunteer to help support, you are helping save lives!
