Volunteering to donate blood at Vitalant is one important way to join our lifesaving team, but we also offer other volunteer opportunities that make a difference in your community. Volunteer opportunities at Vitalant vary by region, but the impact is the same - your actions save lives by helping patients get the blood they need.



Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Refreshment area: Vitalant’s donation centers and blood drives have a refreshment area, also called a canteen. Volunteers manage the area, monitoring donor safety by making sure each donor stays for 15 minutes and enjoys a snack and drink to help replace lost fluids. Most importantly, volunteers make our donors feel appreciated by thanking them for transforming patients’ lives.
  • Preregistration : Welcome and greet our donors. Help donors check-in advise on wait time. Handing out promotional gifts to donors.

Please note: We can work with your schedule.


REQUIREMENTS

  • Background Check
  • Must be at least 16
  • Orientation or Training
