Volunteer opportunities

Senior Horizons volunteers support hospital staff by delivering magazines to patients, assisting with clerical projects and supporting special events.

Our Sew Healing volunteers also meet every Monday morning to make therapeutic pillows for cardiac patients, newborns in the NICU, pediatric patients, patients recovering from abdominal surgeries, orthopedic injuries and mastectomies, and oncology patients. Nearly 100,000 pillows have been given to patients since the program’s inception in 2001.
