Volunteer Drivers Needed to (Literally) Save Lives

Blood Transportation Specialists literally SAVE LIVES every time they volunteer!

The Red Cross Transportation Specialists play a very important role in ensuring an ample blood supply for patients in need is available. A Transportation Specialist is a specially selected and trained volunteer who transports blood and blood products to hospitals for patient use as well as delivering them to the Red Cross offices for processing.

All transportation routes begin and end at the Red Cross’ Park Road office in Charlotte, NC.

Transportation Volunteers:
- Transport lifesaving blood from the American Red Cross Blood Donation Center to area hospitals.
- Gain valuable training/experience while providing an invaluable service to the community.
- Morning and evening routes are available.
- Use of Red Cross owned and branded vehicles for routes.

Time Commitment: Most volunteers drive at least twice a month. Depending upon the route the volunteer selects, each shift can be anywhere from 3-6 hours.

- Valid state driver’s license
- 3+ years licensed driving experience with clean record
- Must be able to lift up to 45 pounds
