    Why Is This Position So Important?

    The Red Cross collects and distributes about 40% of our nation’s blood supply. When you deliver blood, platelets or other blood products to a hospital, you’re delivering hope to a person when they need it most.

    Each volunteer shift you take is another opportunity to help save a life.
