Giving Opportunity: Your Time and Talent

Volunteers make a real difference in the lives of our patients, visitors and staff members. It all starts with a desire to help others by donating your time and talent. As a Volunteer, you'll work with our hospital staff to provide quality care to patients and assist in meeting the needs of our patients and their families and visitors.

You, too, can experience the satisfaction of knowing you are helping your neighbors by becoming a White Memorial Volunteer. You can start with a commitment of as little as four hours a week. If you have more time to give, that's all the better. The time you give to White Memorial will make a huge difference to many people.
