Becoming a Volunteer and The Hospital Auxiliary
Becoming a Volunteer
Volunteers bring to the hospital their own individual gifts of service which are needed and appreciated by the staff and patients. Through their generosity and sacrifice, volunteers allow the staff to make greater use of their skills by freeing them from duties that do not require professional training and making extra care available to the patients.
Schedules are set to meet your needs as well as the needs of the hospital. Days and hours are assigned as far in advance as possible for your convenience. You can volunteer as much or as little as you would like.
If you enjoy serving others and being part of a team, then the St. Joseph’s Hospital Auxiliary might be for you! The Auxiliary is a volunteer organization committed to promoting and advancing the welfare of St. Joseph’s through public relations, services to the hospital and fundraising.
The Auxiliary was founded in 1969 by women who wanted to help the patients of St. Joseph’s. Since then, the Auxiliary has grown to a membership. Membership is free of charge and open to all.
While volunteer service is not a requirement of membership, there are many volunteer opportunities available for those who want to provide service.
