Volunteer Program Overview

At MVRBC, Volunteers are Vital to Life!

From assisting donors to delivering lifesaving products to hospitals or helping with administrative tasks behind the scenes, volunteers perform a wide range of important roles for the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center.

Every day, patients in area hospitals rely on us to provide blood products, a critical resource for potentially lifesaving treatments. Accomplishing our mission takes a diverse team of talented individuals. We have volunteer positions in the areas of Operations, Support and Outreach.

Operations positions range from registering donors and assisting in our donor centers to delivering products to hospitals or assisting in our laboratory or product distribution area.

Support positions include scheduling donors, preparing donor recruitment materials for blood drives, filing and general office support.

Outreach positions involve representing MVRBC in the community, such as volunteering to be our mascot at public events or assisting donors with refreshments at our donor centers and mobile blood drives.

If you enjoy helping others and value meaningful activity, we have a place for you!
