The Volunteer Department strives to assign volunteers to areas that match both the interests of the volunteer and hospital department needs. Opportunities frequently change. Our volunteers must be able to commit to a minimum 100 volunteer hours per calendar year. Most assignments require a 4-hour volunteer shift each week which is 200 hours per calendar year.
- If you are 18 years or older and out of school, please download a questionnaire or call the volunteer office at (360) 493-7482 to request a questionnaire be mailed to you. There are also questionnaires available in the hospital at the Main Hospital Lobby Information Desk and in the Volunteer Services Department.
The Volunteer Department offers a variety of assignments for adults and high school students. We strive to assign volunteers to areas that match both the interests of the volunteer and hospital department needs. Opportunities change from week to week. During the placement interview process, you will find out what volunteer assignments are currently available.
If you are between 13 and 18 years old and need a small number of community service hours or volunteer hours for school, we have a fun and rewarding project with flexible hours helping Providence Humanitarian Mission Project. In a casual atmosphere, work with other volunteers to sort and package medical supplies sent to underprivileged countries. For more information, call (360) 493-5643.
Community Service Hours
Our department does not have a mechanism for fulfilling these short term requirements. However, if you are interested in donating your time on one or more Saturdays to improve people's lives all over the world by sorting and packaging medical supplies for the Providence Humanitarian Mission, you may call (360) 493-5640.
