Co-President of the Volunteers Wilma Breig explains that the volunteer program engages 103 volunteers, with 77 “active” volunteers who work at least once a week. Volunteer duties range from greeting and directing people at the front desk to helping keep the ER stocked, serving snacks to patients and doing odd jobs to help the hospital staff.
“Volunteering at the hospital is an important responsibility. There’s a lot of dedication and responsibility involved,” Breig says, explaining that most hospital volunteers are retired, longtime members of the local community, while a significant portion of volunteers is involved in the Student Volunteer program.
Twin Cities Community Hospital CEO Mark Lisa called last year’s volunteer effort an “extraordinary feat.” He expressed gratitude to the program for its over 14,000 hours of work, saying, “While we are all separate individuals and groups, we all come together and make really special things happen at Twin Cities Community Hospital.”
Volunteers must fill out an application and select an available shift to enroll. Student volunteers must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 and volunteer a minimum of 120 hours to the hospital.
