How Do I Commit for Life as a Volunteer?
You do not have to be a blood donor in order to volunteer. If you are ineligible to donate, volunteering is a great way to still be involved in our lifesaving mission! See how you can help as a volunteer!
Minimum Age: 12 years old. Those ages 12 to 14 must be accompanied by a trained parent or guardian at all activities. Those ages 15 to 17 can volunteer with parental consent.
Orientation and training: All new volunteers must attend Volunteer Orientation. To maintain active status, all volunteers must volunteer at least once, or attended an orientation within a calendar year.
Reliable transportation: Volunteers must provide their own transportation to and from all volunteer assignments, orientation, and trainings.
Email access: All information about the volunteer program is communicated via email.
Volunteers should be dependable and friendly!
We do not accept volunteer phlebotomists or court-ordered community service.
Volunteers Earn Rewards Too
We appreciate our volunteers and the time they dedicate to our community. As a thank you, volunteers can earn points in our Donor Rewards program every time they volunteer. Like donors, volunteers redeem points for e-gift cards to shop at their favorite places.

Bronze Level (1 to 9 hours per calendar year) = 10 points per hour
Silver Level (10 to 39 hours per calendar year) = 15 points per hour
Gold Level (40+ hours per calendar year) = 20 points per hour
IMPORTANT: Your gift card reward will be distributed electronically, so make sure we have your current email address.
