Volunteers

The Red Cross Southwest Region has fixed blood donation centers in Oklahoma and Texas in Dallas, Wichita Falls, Waco, Harlingen, Bryan/College Station and Tulsa.

The regional headquarters are in Tulsa, so volunteer opportunities are more numerous at this location. Please inquire if you are interested in volunteering at a fixed blood donation center.
If you are not close to one of these cities, please consider being a blood drive coordinator, a blood drive sponsor or volunteer blood donor for the next blood drive in your community.
Volunteers are generally needed for four-hour shifts. However, times vary with each position.
Volunteers are needed for a variety of duties. Become part of the American Red Cross lifesaving team today!


Volunteers are the heart of the American Red Cross.
