Volunteering at PMH is a healthy way to make a difference and is a satisfying way to stay active and involved in your community. It means sharing your time and talents where you are needed most and making a difference in people's lives.
What volunteers do is more important than service. It is about creating an experience for patients. Patients say repeatedly what matters the most is how we make them feel. We could not deliver and fulfill our mission without volunteers.
