Critical Volunteer Needs

We invite you to join our team, particularly in one of three critical need opportunities:

Courtesy Van Drivers

Courtesy Van drivers are needed to help Winchester Medical Center patients and guests travel from parking areas to their campus destination. WMC Courtesy Van drivers provide transportation within the WMC Campus while providing a warm welcome to patients and guests.

WMC Auxiliary Attic Thrift Store

The Attic Thrift Store volunteers assist in many ways. Volunteers help with shop upkeep, working the cash register, and assisting customers as they shop. Volunteers also assist with receiving, sorting, pricing, and displaying donated items. The Attic provides a fun environment, friendly team, and opportunities to connect with many members of our community. Proceeds benefit the WMC Cancer Center and other projects to support the care of our community.

Hurst Hospitality House

The Hurst Hospitality House provides free overnight accommodations for family members of WMC patients who live 40 or more miles from Winchester Medical Center. The Hurst House offers guests a home-like atmosphere close to their hospitalized loved one. It is staffed with a compassionate team of Hurst House associates and volunteers who are trained to assist and support guests as they navigate their loved one’s medical circumstances. Volunteers assist with house upkeep, checking in guests, and provide resources and support. Volunteers are needed for all shifts including evenings and late nights.
