BLOOD SERVICES VOLUNTEERS ALSO NEEDED The Red Cross also needs volunteers to support blood collections to help fulfill the ongoing need for blood products and platelets. Blood donor ambassadors play an important role by greeting, registering and providing information to blood donors throughout the donation process. Blood transportation specialists provide a critical link between blood donors and blood recipients by delivering blood to hospitals in our communities.
The relentless pace of severe disasters has created additional and ongoing emergency needs, especially for families who have been displaced year after year by extreme weather events. The need to help during disasters has never been greater. Visit redcross.org to sign up now.
