Why Volunteer?

Some people volunteer because they love helping others. Others do it because they feel a need to give back to their community. Often, it’s because they are expressing gratitude by paying it forward. And for many young people, it’s a great opportunity to learn about career options while having fun.

No matter your reason, Friends of Children’s Hospital needs you. We guarantee you’ll find the joy of giving when you know your time makes a difference for our patients and their families.

Volunteers are critical to how Friends is able to do what we do for the Children’s Hospital. With nearly 40 volunteer board members who are actively planning and coordinating fundraisers, they are the heart of our organization. But they can’t do it alone.

Ways our volunteers help:

  • Serve on an event committee
  • Host a fundraiser (link to this form)
  • Set up and host the Friends tent at local events
  • Assist with registration at events
  • Collect donations during events
  • Sell raffle tickets
  • Man a water station at a 5K or stuff goodie bags for the runners

We hope you will make time to help Children’s Hospital and see the wonderful things happening here.
