Volunteer Services: Volunteer Stories


"Patients kid us and say, ‘Here come the good guys!'"
— Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital Early Bird Program volunteer

“Caring and compassion are two of the critical values one can share with fellow humans. Over the years, when times have been difficult in my life, many wonderful people have been there for me and my family. Now that I have retired, I decided it is time to give back to the community. Park Nicollet does many caring things to help heal many families and I appreciate its work and its values. This is one of the main reasons I am volunteering.”
— Park Nicollet Frauenshuh Cancer Center volunteer

"Why do I volunteer? I guess I like seeing the direct impact I have on my community and being a part of something bigger than myself."
— Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital Gift Shoppe youth volunteer

"Being a volunteer is one of the most self-satisfying things I have ever done. I consider it a privilege to be a Park Nicollet volunteer."
— Information Desk volunteer

"I became hooked on volunteering when I first walked into the friendly Volunteer Services office. My life has been enriched because of this opportunity."
