Volunteer Opportunities - Alamance County
Alamance Regional and MedCenter Mebane
For your safety and the safety of others, we have cancelled all of our 2020 Summer Teen Programs. We look forward to offering these programs once again in 2021.
Volunteers of all ages are making a difference at Alamance Regional Medical Center and MedCenter Mebane. Every day, volunteers greet visitors, escort patients for discharge, provide directions, deliver patient mail and perform countless other tasks. The smiles, comfort and helping hands they offer to patients and families are a vital part of our organization. They also provide Med Alert services to the surrounding community and operate a hospital shuttle and two gift shops on our main campus.
Our volunteers work through the Alamance Regional Medical Center Auxiliary. The auxiliary also raises funds to provide equipment that enhances patient care. If you would like to be a part of our volunteer team, please complete the appropriate application and return via mail or fax to Gina Blackwell, Director of Volunteer and Guest Services. Adult volunteer applications are accepted year round; teen volunteer applications are accepted in the spring, at the information sessions noted below. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact Gina at (336) 538-7545.
