You can give more than blood

Support from dedicated people comes not only from those who donate, but also from those who serve as Volunteers and/or Volunteer Chairpersons.

Volunteers and/or Volunteer Chairpersons are those very special people who care enough to donate time and effort to make a meaningful contribution. Without Volunteers and/or Volunteer Chairpersons, The Blood Alliance would not be successful in its mission to Enrich Lives Through Outstanding Blood Service.   

Volunteers share their expertise while also learning new skills, meeting new people, and experiencing the satisfaction of helping others.

All volunteers will receive a link to attend the required online orientation before beginning service. Once completed, you will receive a welcome email with a link to the TBA Volunteer Information Center. You will be able to schedule yourself at a donor center, mobile blood drive, or special event and you may volunteer as much as your schedule allows. Please call 904-353-8263 or 888-99-TBA-HERO (888-447-1479) with any questions! You can also email volunteering@thebloodalliance.org for more information.
