AB Calgary and Southern Alberta

Welcome to Canadian Blood Services Calgary and Alberta South VOLUNTEER PAGE. 

Our new Calgary Donor Centre at Penn West opened on May 27th, 2024! Our new address is 207 - 9th Ave SW, in the heart of downtown Calgary.

                                                                                                   

In addition to our beautiful new centre, we also operate several MOBILE donor centres across Calgary and throughout the rural communities of southern Alberta.

We have an ongoing need for personable, friendly volunteers who enjoy working with the public to assist with donor stewardship, community awareness, and being ambassadors for Canadian Blood Services. Depending on the organizational needs of CBS, selected applicants will receive an invite to attend a Volunteer Information Session. Information sessions are held on an ongoing basis, depending on the current openings for volunteers.

If you have any questions about volunteering with Canadian Blood Services in Calgary and/or the greater southern Alberta region, please reach out to the Volunteer Resources Coordinator:

General Interests

Calgary and Alberta South Accepting Applications

 

Thank you for your interest in applying to join our volunteer team at Canadian Blood Services (CBS). Volunteers play an important role in helping us keep our promise: to help every patient, match every need, and serve every Canadian.

Volunteers share their time and skills in providing hospitality support in both our permanent and mobile donor centres, as well as championing CBS at a variety of our in-community events. By assisting in recruiting new donors, sharing key messaging, and being a team member that ensures a positive donor experience, volunteers are invaluable ambassadors. They play a key role in the post-donation experience by providing a welcoming atmosphere in which donors are provided with needed refreshments and time to recoup before leaving the centre. All volunteers receive training and ongoing opportunities for. continued learning and connection with team members. 

We are also accepting short term applications for the Summer for either weekly

All applications are reviewed and applicants will be contacted depending on current openings for volunteers and organizational needs for increased volunteer support.
