Volunteers transport patients being admitted to or discharged from the hospital. Volunteers also gain the pleasure of delivering flowers and mail to our patients.
The EMMC Auxiliary Gift Shop
Volunteers in this area give twice as much! They give of their time, as well as all the proceeds from the shop are given back to the hospital in a wide variety of areas. A fast paced area with hustle and bustle for those that love to shop, this is the place you will enjoy!
An environment that is guaranteed to be busy more than not is the Emergency department. This is a place for those with thick skin, tough emotions, and an ability to be on your feet with lots of work and sometimes surprises.
For volunteers that love to talk on the phone you will be happy here! Volunteer callers make contact every morning of the week to people living alone. The callers check in with the Telecare participants between 8 - 11 am. Some talk of the weather, some talk of their day's plans, some don't talk at all! They all depend on someone calling to say hello. Volunteers generally fill one day a week.
Those that love detail, filing, and phones, making friends while working independently will while away their time very quickly helping with office support throughout the hospital.
CancerCare Resource Ambassadors
EMMC's CancerCare ambassadors assist our patients in discovering resources to help them through their journey as well as helping out with hospitality, allowing our patients to experience warm and comfortable visits. The tasks are numerous and almost always revolve around helping people.
If you have demonstrated experience working with young people and like an independent interaction you may wish to discuss this area. You will be nearly guaranteed to feel great when you leave this area, as you will warm a child's heart more often than not.
Surround yourself with friendly, kind people and a world of knowledge. If this appeals to you, the library will be the spot you will want to be.
Most of our positions are filled Monday through Friday in four-hour increments from 8 - 12 noon, and 12 noon - 4 pm. Some changes are accommodated when necessary.
