Volunteer Program Overview

At CICBC, Volunteers are Vital to Life!

From assisting donors to delivering lifesaving products to hospitals or helping with administrative tasks behind the scenes, volunteers perform a wide range of important roles for the Central Illinois Community Blood Center.

Every day, patients in area hospitals rely on us to provide blood products, a critical resource for potentially lifesaving treatments. Accomplishing our mission takes a diverse team of talented individuals. We have volunteer positions in the areas of Operations, Support and Outreach.

  • Operations positions range from assisting in our donor centers to delivering products to hospitals or assisting in our product distribution area.
  • Support positions may include scheduling donors, preparing donor recruitment materials for blood drives, filing and general office support.
  • Outreach positions involve representing the Blood Center in the community, such as volunteering to assist donors with refreshments at our donor center and mobile blood drives.
