Volunteer Services

Volunteer Services

Volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds, but share a common desire to help others. Volunteers are retirees, teenagers, former patients, homemakers, husband and wife teams, those who are busy and those who are not so busy. Volunteers are people just like you!

Volunteens

The Volunteen Program is open to young people ages 14-19. Teens are welcomed into the program throughout the year. Volunteering offers teens the reward of helping others and exposes them to a wide variety of health care professions. Another benefit to the Volunteen Program is the $1,000 scholarship awarded annually by the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.
