If you’re organized, self-motivated, and don’t mind a bit of paperwork, we have volunteer opportunities at our Reception Desk. No computer skills are needed. Volunteers provide assistance to patients and guests by serving as a receptionist at the front desk where they provide directions, answer questions and assist with various needs. Volunteer shifts are 9 am to 1 pm and 1pm to 5 pm Monday through Friday and 7:45 am to Noon on Saturdays.

Gift Shoppe

Volunteers in our Gift Shoppe assist with sales and displaying merchandise. Volunteer shifts are 9:30–12:30 and 12:30–4 pm Monday–Friday.

Supportive Services in Nursing

Volunteers in nursing areas provide supportive services such as delivering meal trays/refreshments to patients. They may also read to patients or engage them in social activities like playing cards or working puzzles. They may also assist with clerical and receptionist duties. Shift times vary dependent on needs of the Nursing unit and availability of volunteers.

Community Service

Volunteers provide support to various community service projects such as registering blood donors during Red Cross Blood Drive, Delivering Meals on Wheels and participating in other community service projects supported by St. Mary’s.
