What You Can Do As A Volunteer
 
As a nonprofit, the American Red Cross Blood Services relies on the help of volunteers to effectively meet the needs of patients in the 120 hospitals it serves in the Southern Region. These patients have diverse needs, and there are various ways in which you can volunteer to help the Red Cross improve their lives.
 
It’s easy to become a Red Cross volunteer! Our volunteer services team will accommodate your schedule while allowing you to make a meaningful contribution that utilizes your skills in available locations. If necessary, we will also provide the training you need to perform a certain function effectively.
