Our volunteers make a difference
Throughout the Children's Hospital, you will see many volunteers fulfilling important responsibilities. They donate their time and energy to improving life for our young patients, their families, and visitors. These volunteers are motivated by a special love for children. They include high school and college students, working adults, senior citizens, homemakers, and people from many different walks of life who wish to give of their unique talents.
