Those who volunteer come from a variety of backgrounds. The skills and talents each individual holds are influential in the overall big picture.

Their duties differ from one day to the next from greeting guests in admitting, and helping families navigate the hospital, to serving as office assistants and assisting in community events and fundraising efforts.

At Touchette, volunteer opportunities are valuable and available for everyone. These individuals provide key services for and within our hospital, while also playing an important role in the community.
