VolunteeringMayers Healthcare Foundation values our wonderful volunteers! Volunteers are an important part of our organization by giving their time, sharing their diverse knowledge and great talents...our volunteers never hold back. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities such as working at Intermountain Hospice, gardening, assisting residents at the long-term care facilities in Fall River or Burney, clerical work and projects, or thrift store and gift shop support. We also have fundraising and healthcare events throughout the year that are lots of fun! Much of our success is due to the efforts and hard work of our volunteers.

FAQDo I have to get a background check?
Yes, everyone over 18 years of age has to complete a background check per our hospital policy.
Do I have to work a certain amount of hours to volunteer?
No. We recognize that people are busy but want to help when they can. We do ask when working at our stores that you try to keep to the hours of operation. Some areas may have time specific activities.
Is there a uniform to wear?
No, we do not require wearing a uniform. We do ask that you follow a standard of a clean and presentable dress code.
Can kids volunteer?
We have a junior volunteer program that starts at age 14 to 17. Requirement is the same as adult with the exception of the background check. Parental/guardian permission is required. There may be specific areas or jobs that junior volunteers are not qualified to do.
Is there any training involved in volunteering?
Yes, initially you are required to attend an orientation with the Volunteer Services Coordinator. You will receive specific area orientation when you report to your assigned job. Occasionally, there are some training in-services available for those who wish to attend or may be job specific.
If I work four hours or more in a day, am I allowed a break?
Breaks are allowed and encouraged. When you work four or more hours in a day, you are eligible for a free lunch in our Mayers café. You only have to show your badge to the employee in the café. A lunch is either the meal of the day, a salad from the salad bar, variety of sandwiches, hamburger/fries, or chicken strips. Water, coffee and ice tea is available free. If you desire a specialty drink, you must pay for that. Desserts are extra too.
What do I do if I can't work when I was scheduled?
We understand that things happen or come up. We ask that you please call whoever your direct contact person is and let them know as a courtesy.
