Make a Difference Through Volunteering


Nebraska Community Blood Bank welcomes you to consider the role you can play in helping us meet the needs of our hospital partners and the patients, donors, and communities we serve. We will match your interests and skills with our current volunteer needs.

Being an NCBB volunteer is a rewarding way to make an impact in the community. We have an ongoing need for volunteers to help us out by:

  • Being a Canteen Host who thanks donors after they give and monitors for signs of post-donation reactions

  • Providing support at blood drives

  • Representing NCBB at health fairs and community events

  • Providing marketing support to help promote the need for blood donors

  • Volunteering at special events, such as donor recognition events and community races

Upcoming volunteer opportunity:

Nebraska Community Blood Bank is the Born and Raced in Nebraska (BRIN) Running Series Charity of Choice! This means we provide a group of wonderful volunteers to help the race run smoothly and BRIN helps to raise awareness and funds to support blood donation.

The second race in the BRIN series, Cornfield Cornfield, is coming up on Saturday, June 13 at Werner Park in Papillion. Many runners have fun with the theme and dress up as farmers or even ears of corn! You can join in by choosing from two fun volunteer positions:

  • Water Station 3: Volunteers are out on the race course, handing off water cups to thirsty runners and cheering them on. (6:30-9:30 AM)
  • Race Day Packet Pickup: Volunteers help runners get ready for the race by handing out t-shirts and numbered bibs. (5:45-8:00 AM)

All volunteers will receive an NCBB shirt and entrance to the after party! To formally sign up, please complete the waiver online.

If you have any additional questions, please contact Erica Busta.

  • Make a financial gift

    Pay tribute to a loved one, honor a special birthday, attend a fundraiser, or include Nebraska Community Blood Bank in your estate planning.
