Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers can serve in a number of capacities, including:
  • Information Desk volunteers assist patients, families and visitors in navigating our facility. Information Desk volunteers directly interact with visitors, providing guidance and direction, and also deliver patient mail, gifts and flowers as needed.

  • Coffee Cart volunteers visit waiting areas and patient floors to offer free coffee, hot chocolate and tea.

  • Popcorn volunteers pop and sell fresh popcorn in our main concourse. This fundraising activity helps support our programs to benefit patients, families and the community.

  • Glass Door Gift Shop volunteers help visitors shop and select items; all proceeds benefit the patient projects of the volunteer group.

  • ER Rounding volunteers assist patients and guests in the emergency room. 

  • Sleep Lab volunteers assist with patients and guests from 6:30-9:00 p.m. in the evenings every day of the week.

  • Other volunteer opportunities are sometimes available, including delivering new patient welcome gifts, distributing magazines, office work, committees and more. During the informational session we will share all the opportunities open to you.
