My Red Cross Volunteer Story: Marion Ekokobe
Marion Ekokobe has been volunteering as a Blood Donor Ambassador multiple times every week since April 2016. In that short time, Marion has clocked in more than 1,000 hours of volunteer service, mostly between the Dr. Charles R. Drew Donor Center in Washington, DC and the Rockville Donor Center.
Fellow volunteers and donor center managers alike have recognized Marion’s dedication to her volunteer assignments. She is praised for her clean and organized workspaces as well as her “excellent customer service relationship with both staff and donors.”
Marion is from Cameroon in West Africa. In her professional life, she has worked administering kidney dialysis treatments. Currently, she is a massage therapist and esthetician and is working on her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine. Marion came to the Red Cross in order to acclimate herself more to the medical field.
“Traveling and meeting people” are Marion’s favorite aspects about volunteering as a Blood Donor Ambassador. In addition to volunteering at American Red Cross blood drives, Marion also volunteers for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Her free time is occupied with homework, watching movies, creating projects for her business and networking.
