Start address:

These volunteers are vital to our donor's overall donation experience. Volunteers serve refreshments, talk with donors, and remain alert and immediately call for help if a donor shows signs that he/she does not feel well.  In addition, volunteers encourage donors to donate again, and promote a positive, long-lasting impression of the American Red Cross.
 
Purpose:
Serving refreshments, talking with donors, being alert and knowing to immediately call for help if a donor shows signs that he/she does not feel well. Donor Diner volunteers play a key role in making sure that donors have an overall good experience so that they will donate again.
 
Key responsibilities:
·         Serve refreshments to donors after their donation
·         Talk with donors
·         Provide donor pins when appropriate
·         Alerting medical staff if a donor does not appear to be feeling well or their arm is bleeding
·         Schedule next blood donation appointment when applicable

Volunteer at least once per month at a blood drive. The length of a blood drive is approximately 6 – 7 hrs. It is acceptable if you are only available a portion of that time.
