Within the last few months I have just started volunteering as an “In-Community Volunteer”. It truly is a great feeling to join Canadian Blood Services and give my time to help grow our donor base. I enjoy working with Canadian Blood Services staff and many volunteers; they are all very supportive, energetic and great people. We all have the same goals and purpose and that is to give life back to those in need. What I have learned over the years is whether you are a blood donor like I have been for over 30 times or a volunteer; life is very precious and everyone makes a difference.
I would like to encourage others to do what they can as a volunteer or be a donor in any capacity for Canadian Blood Services. It is truly a rewarding experience. Helping each other to give life is a priceless gift!
