Why Volunteer?

Volunteers are very special and generous people, dedicating their unique talents, time and caring attitudes. Volunteers bring a special something to the life of a community.

Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds and life experiences and each brings something unique and necessary to the work of the auxiliary. Every member is valued and recognized for enriching the lives of others in the community in countless ways.. 

Reasons for volunteering vary from person to person and may include:

  • The desire to help others

  • To gain experience in a hospital setting

  • Make new friendships

  • Use or develop skills

  • Obtain references

  • Experience for your resume

  • Opportunity to give back to the community 

Whatever your reason, our hospital auxiliaries appreciate your contributions.

Volunteer Requirements

In the interest of maintaining a safe and comfortable environment for all, Auxiliary members are required to have a Vulnerable Sector Police Records Check and a two part TB skin test prior to active membership. The Hospital Auxiliary makes all necessary arrangements for both.

The Palmerston and District Hospital Auxiliary strives to create a respectful, accessible and inclusive volunteering environment.  Upon individual request, the Association will endeavour to remove any barrier to the selection process to accommodate those candidates with disabilities. Our Auxiliary is committed to providing and fostering a safe, healthy and respectful volunteer experience free from violence and harassment.
