St. James Healthcare's Volunteer Auxiliary serve in a variety of capacities, and numerous volunteer opportunities are available.
Where You Can Serve
The Gift Shop at St. James Healthcare is staffed entirely by volunteers, as is the Front Information Desk. Desk attendants assist clerks in admitting patients and helping to get patients and visitors where they need to go. In addition, the hospital's Auxiliary delivers mail and newspapers (courtesy of Marquis Vintage Suites Assisted Living) to patients each day.
Volunteer opportunities are also available in Food Services, Human Resources, the Business Office, Medical Records, Surgery, and the Emergency Department.
Annual Auxiliary Events
The Auxiliary has three luncheons during the year and sponsors various fundraising activities. These activities, together with Gift Shop sales, allow the Auxiliary to purchase new equipment for St. James Healthcare.
The Auxiliary purchases fabric for the Obstetrics Department to make blankets for every baby born at St. James.
The group also awards seven $1,000 scholarships each year and takes care of the Book of Memories that honors the deceased through memorial donations.
