Blood Bank of Delmarva


INCLEMENT WEATHER
In case of inclement weather call 302-737-8405 ext. 411 for updates – but please be safe and don’t report to volunteer if the conditions are not good, even if the centers or mobiles are operating!  Let us know you are not coming by calling 302-737-8405, ext. 703 Concord, ext. 743 Christiana, ext. 100 Dover, ext. 513 Salisbury.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Blood Bank of Delmarva to help save lives!  We have different roles for volunteers with more being added as we grow.

After you apply online, you will get a welcome email, reply to that email to set up a meeting with the Volunteer Relations Specialist, Angela Williamson, either in person or via phone if you are not in the Northern DE area.  We want this experience to be the best fit for you and us to give everyone the best most fulfilling experience!

After completing the online application, and setting up a meeting/call with Angela, the next step in the process is to complete these two online training sessions to learn more about BBD and what we do! 

As needed you will:

  • complete specific training for your assignment (as needed),
  • and complete a background check in the future  when we implement it. 

The volunteer program is growing and adapting, so thank you for your patience as we determine the best ways to accomplish our goals in the upcoming months.

I look forward to meeting you in person or via phone and getting you started on a life changing experience!

In case of inclement weather, please do NOT go in to volunteer if the conditions are unsafe where you are.  Please call 302-737-8405 ext. 411 to hear if conditions are not good at the Center or Mobile locations. 

The Centers will aim to be open and functioning, however, we do NOT want volunteers to come during bad weather.  We want you to be safe at home.  There will be less donors, so the staff will take care of the needs during the inclement weather.  Thank you!

Angela Williamson, CVA
Community & Volunteer Relations Specialist
