The woman who worked with my group were amazing. They kept us informed of not only what we were doing, but what others were doing as well. They let us know what each machine does and how they work, and what is taken from us donating. The staff was extremely friendly and the environment was clean and kept.

There are various volunteer activities from which one can choose. I am a person who likes to share knowledge with others, and likes to meet new people. The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center utilizes what I like to do. Appreciation for what I do is high on my list. The staff does not take volunteers for granted, and give pats on the back for job(s) well done. Volunteer opportunities include but not limited to: office work; the Speaker's Bureau; the advocacy groups for neighborhood donor centers; mobile blood drives (sign up table before blood drive/greeting donors @ blood drive; manning a table at health fairs & giving out information. One can also be the coordinator of the blood drive for their school, church, business, or other organization. I get satisfaction from knowing that my efforts are "helping heal the sick," a corporal work of mercy. It is "giving back." My husband, my dad, my step mom, and my brother are alive today because they received the Gift of Life.
