Canadian Blood Services, Barrie Area Office, Blood Donor Clinic
Varies
Canadian Blood Services holds monthly community blood donor clinics throughout Simcoe County and particpates within the community at events and organizations to raise the awareness for the need for blood products and donors. 
 
In Clinic Volunteers: 
Customer care and service are vitally important to supporting Canada’s blood system — especially during the donation process. 
 
Greeting donors with a smile, making conversation, and accompanying and encouraging them throughout the donation process helps them feel welcome and comfortable. The care and attention you give is very often a key reason why donors return. As one of the last faces donors see on their way out, you play a critical role in the success of future blood donor clinics. 
 
In Community Volunteers:  
If you’d like a volunteer opportunity that offers a flexible schedule and involves participating in community events with a focus on recruiting new donors and promoting upcoming clinics, an in-community role may be right for you. In-community volunteering is a great chance to meet people by working with different groups and raising awareness of the importance of donating blood. 
 
The application for volunteering is available on the website and it is most efficient to complete that and allow the volunteer coordinator to contact you.
