ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: American Red Cross in Eastern New York

Can’t donate blood? No problem! Donate your time to save lives.

The Red Cross is honored to be a major supplier of blood to area hospitals, leading to life-saving treatment. We’ve learned that donors are more likely to keep coming back when they have a wonderful experience at blood drives. Just one extra unit of blood could save up to three lives! Volunteers help us make sure the donor gets a warm welcome, assistance, a refreshment and a word of thanks during each visit.
