What is Volunteerism?
Volunteerism is the donation of a person's time and talents without pay to help other people directly or to help people indirectly by assisting charitable, educational or healthcare organizations that serve people in need.
Here at ECU Health North Hospital, volunteering has become so important especially in today’s world as we continue to navigate our new normal on the heels of an ever-changing COVID-19 pandemic.
Being a non-profit organization, we thrive on having such essential support and resources during such critical times.
Our volunteers at ECU Health North Hospital come from all walks of life.
They range from retired residents who want to contribute their knowledge and years of valuable work experience to young people who want to get a head start on a rewarding career.
Working professionals who can find just a few hours of spare time contribute greatly to our mission of quality patient care.
As different as our volunteers are, they share important qualities.
They are caring.
They are compassionate.
And they are willing to help others.
Each of our volunteers tell us that what they receive is far more valuable than monetary compensation.
As a volunteer, you will meet new people, make new friends and have exciting experiences.
And at the end of the day, you’ll get the biggest reward of all — knowing that you helped someone who needed you.
Volunteer perks include:
Employee health services such as flu shots and other vaccinations
Formal job or school references
Customer service and leadership training
Joining employees at designated functions
The Auxiliary at ECU Health North Hospital is always looking for new volunteers.
