Rewards of Volunteering

People volunteer at Presbyterian for a variety of reasons. Many are retirees who want to do something stimulating and worthwhile. Others still work, but they like to volunteer a few hours in the evening or on weekends. Student volunteers use their volunteer experience to explore healthcare careers and complete school community service requirements.

Other benefits of volunteering with us include:

  • Free flu shots
  • Gift Shop discounts
  • Free membership at the Presbyterian Healthplex (minimum hours required)
  • Annual Appreciation & Awards Luncheon
  • How2 OnDemand learning platform (minimum hours required)
