  • Q. What will I be able to contribute as a volunteer?

    A. There are numerous administrative and patient-centered activities a volunteer can perform. Sharing your smile, holding a hand, listening to thoughts and stories, or reading are all activities which help improve the quality of life for a patient. Administrative duties might include filing, copying, event planning, phone answering, and other duties that would normally be associated with an office setting.

Our hospital is a tertiary care facility that is right off interstate. We get patients from across the country and around the world. This has been my most difficult placement. Assisting a patient back to Pakistan was easier than South Carolina. Your team will remain in my contact list. I only wish I had found them sooner.
