Over the past three weeks, the Blood Center has been forced to cancel dozens of blood drives (68, and counting) leading to a loss of more than 2200 donations due to record cold tempatures, snow, and ice.
If you are able to safely travel to donate blood this week, please do. To find a donation location near you, call (800) 747-5401, visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app.
With another winter storm on the way to portions of our service region, we will continue to provide information on the impact of winter weather at www.bloodcenter.org/weather.
Our volunteers are vital to life! Watch this video we put together for Volunteer Appreciation Week and see below for information on the important role volunteers can play in providing for our region's blood supply.
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 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 appointment reminder calls to donors, preparing donor recruitment materials for blood drives, filing and general office support.
Outreach positions involve representing the Blood Center in the community, by blood typing and helping at our school programs or community events or assisting donors with refreshments at our donor centers and mobile blood drives.
Volunteer positions vary per location.
