Volunteer Opportunities with Children's Health Foundation
Event Volunteers – Children's Health Foundation hosts and is supported by several highly successful events throughout the year. Volunteers fulfill a variety of roles that ensure the success of these initiatives. From assisting with registration or silent auctions to leading children’s activities to enhancing guests’ experiences, you will have the opportunity to interact with members of the community who raise funds for our Children’s family. Please note that many of the events requiring support are scheduled for evenings and weekends.
Administrative Volunteers - Assist with a diverse range of projects at the Foundation. Responsible for greeting guests, answering phone calls, compiling materials, assembling event kits, data entry and associated administrative tasks. Administrative volunteers are typically required to work during the work week between regular Foundation office hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
Dr. Beary Goode – Volunteering as the Foundation's mascot or his guide involves visiting patients at Children's Hospital, as well as attending fundraising and special events throughout our region. This is an important volunteer role, as it provides children and their families with something to smile about. At local events, Dr. Beary Goode interacts with families and community members and poses with his fans for photo opportunities. Dr. Beary Goode visits Children's Hospital at regularly scheduled times during the week. Community events can take place at anytime during weekdays, evenings or weekends. Mascot and Guide volunteers must provide Children's Health Foundation with a Police Vulnerable Sector Check.
Work Team/Committee Volunteers - Our Foundation relies on committee and work team volunteers to provide leadership, expertise and guidance, as well as practical event coordination to facilitate the success of our signature events. Typically, work teams and committees meet on a monthly basis throughout the year.
