Studies have found volunteering leads to improved physical and mental health because it provides a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Volunteering can be a very rewarding experience. If you ask Freeman volunteers why they volunteer, you may get a variety of reasons. Some of the reasons I have heard from our volunteers include:
“I enjoy the new friends I have made.”
“It brings me joy, and I feel good about myself.”
“I work in a positive atmosphere.”
“I love the challenge of learning something new.”
“It gives me a sense of pride, knowing I am helping others as well as giving back to my community.”
“It gets me out of the house, and Freeman offers great benefits to their volunteers.”
To get started, simply call me at 417.347.4603 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are welcomed to job shadow in a couple of areas before deciding which area fits you best. We work to get you on a day and time slot that works best for you. Some of the areas available to volunteer are ICU, surgery check-in desk, information desk, Freeman Gift Gallery, Freeman Cancer Institute, and Freeman Heart & Vascular Institute. We can accommodate a busy schedule – most Freeman volunteers work one 4-hour shift a week, so volunteering doesn’t have to be a big time commitment. We also offer an easy process for taking time off.
We hope this opportunity is just what you are looking for, and we are anxious to hear from you!
