Darin Steffl enjoyed volunteering in the Blood Donor Center during his senior year of high school. Donating whole blood takes between 45 to 60 minutes, and donating plasma can take up to two hours. As a volunteer in the Blood Donor Center, Darin was stationed in the waiting area and had numerous responsibilities. He offered refreshments to blood donors, provided magazines and newspapers, set up videotapes for children whose parents were donating blood, helped donors get settled with laptops or other equipment, or sat and talked with donors after they gave blood. Darin knew how important each donor was to Mayo Clinic and the community, and through his volunteer efforts they made sure that the people who came to donate blood had the best experience possible.
