Calvary Hospital Celebrates National Volunteer Week 2021

National Volunteer Week is a great time to celebrate volunteers, acknowledge their impact on our communities, and encourage others to volunteer. 

Here at Calvary, volunteers help us realize our mission in our day-to-day work and operations. Volunteers are what make CalvaryCare® a unique experience for our patients and their families.

Calvary volunteers are part of our family and we are proud of them and the work they do!

Calvary Hospital volunteers are special people — of all ages, ethnic and religious backgrounds — who devote their time, talents, and energy to our patients.

An integral part of patient/family events Calvary volunteers participate in monthly patient birthday parties, special events, and holiday celebrations. Volunteers also provide clerical assistance to Calvary’s various departments.

As a nonprofit, Calvary volunteers play an integral part in the work we do in meeting our mission, and we deeply value the compassion, energy, and love they share in the work they do!
