Description

Share a Smile: Volunteer at Red Cross Blood Drives in Bannock County!

The Red Cross provides about 40% of our nation's blood and blood components, thanks to the generosity of donors. You can make a significant impact on this life-saving mission by ensuring the seamless operation of these drives and offering a warm welcome as a volunteer Donor Ambassador at your local blood drive! Blood Donor Ambassadors welcome donors to blood drives and provide friendly support before and after they give. This can include helping donors to register, answering their questions and assisting them at the refreshments table.

Time Commitment:

Blood drives occur every Monday and Friday at our fixed donation center in Pocatello, as well at various locations throughout the community on Tuesday-Thursday. We ask that volunteers register for at least one shift per month (but more is greatly appreciated!). As a volunteer, you will have the ability to sign up for the dates and times that best meet your needs.

Ready to make a difference? Here's how to get started!

  1. Go to redcross.org/volunteer to complete our online application. It takes less than 10 minutes!
  2. Once your application and background check are complete, a member of our team will reach out for a quick screening call. This allows us to make sure this position is the perfect fit for your interest, availability, and needs.
  3. We’ll get you connected and provide all necessary training to ensure you feel supported and successful as a volunteer.
