***Safety First! Our need for volunteers is constant and our guidelines reflect the latest CDC safety recommendations and follow the national and local government laws. Effective April 1, except for those in attendance at blood drives and congregate shelters, masks will become optional for fully vaccinated volunteers and employees and those who interact with our mission across the country.
