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.
