Volunteer Opportunities

New York-Penn

Governed by volunteers and supported by giving individuals and communities, the American Red Cross is the single largest
supplier of blood products to hospitals throughout the United States. While local hospital needs are always met first, the Red Cross also helps ensure no patient goes without blood no matter where or when they need it.

Volunteers are critical to the American Red Cross Blood Services’ mission of supplying the safest possible, most reliable, most cost-effective blood through voluntary donations. As an American Red Cross volunteer you can help others, gain experience and make friends. Your talents will be used to help the Red Cross provide blood to people in need.
The New York Penn Region offers a variety of Volunteer Opportunities as outlined below:
Blood Drive Volunteers receive their training and are scheduled through local Red Cross Chapters. They work at mobile and Blood Donation Centers in their own neighborhoods.
Volunteers pack materials that are used at blood drives. Individuals, families, civic or corporate groups find this a fun and rewarding way to make a difference. Availability varies.
If you are looking for an opportunity that is meaningful and makes you feel appreciated every day, we invite you to join the Volunteer Driver Program!   
Volunteers provide support in our Regional Centers by doing general office work in various departments. Typical duties include filing, photocopying, collating, bulk mail preparation and data entry.
