By volunteering time with your local Red Cross, you will contribute to your community's blood supply and change lives, starting with your own. The American Red Cross provides the fabric that enables ordinary individuals to perform extraordinary services.

Benefits of volunteering

  • You will feel great knowing you are making a difference.
  • You will meet donors and hear why they give blood or how blood transfusions have touched their lives. It may change your own.
  • You can do good on your own schedule, volunteer as much as and as often as your schedule permits.
  • You will enjoy flexible locations and times.
  • You will become part of a 130-year-old tradition of neighbors helping neighbors in need.
