The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To fulfill the needs of the American people for the safest, most reliable and most cost-effective blood services through voluntary donations.
As a Donor Ambassador, you will work at Red Cross blood drives to create a welcoming atmosphere and ensure that each donor correctly follows procedures for a successful donation. You will have the opportunity to interact with donors and other volunteers as you help blood drives run smoothly.
Specific roles may include registering donors as they arrive, directing donors as they move through the donation process, monitoring donors to ensure their safety following donation, and serving refreshments to donors at the canteen table.
Drives occur at various times and locations throughout the community, so you can sign up to volunteer each month based on what fits into your schedule!
At the American Red Cross, it is our mission to ensure that lifesaving blood is always available for patients who need it. Come and help us reach this goal!
