Red Cross seeks volunteers to coordinate community blood drives

American Red Cross is currently looking for people to fill volunteer blood drive coordinator roles in Shenandoah, Glenwood, Bedford and Corning.

The blood drive coordinator role calls for a dedicated individual who wants to give back to the community. A strong blood drive coordinator possesses organizational skills, is personable and motivated to take the helm, and has good customer service skills. This position requires just 10 to 15 hours per blood drive, four to five times a year.  

“Throughout the Red Cross, volunteers contribute in countless ways, including serving military and civilian families, responding to emergencies, donating blood, coordinating blood drives and more,” said Carrie Hauschild, donor recruitment account manager. “The Red Cross could not operate without the tireless efforts of volunteers.”

If anyone is interested in serving their community as a Red Cross blood drive coordinator, contact Hauschild at 402-350-9623 or

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a nonprofit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information, visit, or Twitter at @RedCross.
