Some tasks include advertising, registration, monitoring the canteen where snacks and beverages are offered, and greeting donors.

Additionally, the CCCE has supported the implementation of the Proxy Donation Campaign. The Proxy Donation Campaign is an effort to raise awareness about the FDA restrictions on men who have sex with men from donating blood by encouraging allies to donate in place of these ineligible donors (largely gay, bisexual, and queer men).
