The Fort Hamilton Hospital’s volunteers provide a valuable service to our patients as well as our employees. Volunteer groups include the Auxiliary, CAIR (Comfort And Individual Response), Chaplain Volunteers, Colleagues, Eucharistic Ministers and Junior Volunteers.
The Auxiliary raises funds internally with gold jewelry sales, uniform sales, book sales and more. They also manage the Wishing Well Gift Shop.
CAIR and Junior Volunteers assist patient and staff with running errands.
Colleagues are the goodwill ambassadors to the community. Their fundraising events include Autumn Splendor, “Fore” For Fort golf outing, Lights of Love and Autumn Auction. The Colleagues also manage a thrift store, the Bargain Bungalow.
Our volunteers have helped many patients through difficult times with their kind words and actions and have raised millions of dollars for new equipment and renovations needed at the hospital.
