Memorial Medical Center-Livingston Volunteer Auxiliary is looking for additional volunteers who want to be part a vital organization aimed at helping others.
This group of energetic volunteers provides assistance throughout the hospital from greeting guests and answering telephones to operating the gift shop and popping popcorn.
“We place our volunteers in positions according to their preferences and our immediate needs,” Volunteer President Janis Hearn said. “This organization is a collection of so many talents, and we want people to serve where they feel comfortable. I believe we all have something different to give.”
Volunteers enjoy numerous benefits including a uniform furnished by the hospital, flexible work hours, a free meal on the day they work, a free tuberculosis test and free mammograms for women under 65 years old, and a free flu shot.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, and they must work a four-hour shift each week.
“Being a volunteer is exciting,” Hearn said. “I always look forward to coming to work so that I can meet someone’s needs. It’s a great opportunity to do something for someone else. At Memorial we have the chance to help so many people in our four-hour shift. It’s a great way to give back to our community.”
Proceeds from popcorn, jewelry and cake sales go toward scholarships for graduating high school seniors wanting to pursue the medical field. Profits from the Memorial Gift Shop go toward purchasing equipment for Memorial Medical Center-Livingston.
Anyone interested in joining the Volunteer Auxiliary should contact Hearn at (936) 646-2888.
