Today, as CHI Memorial has grown to meet the needs of our community, so has our volunteer team - a team of several hundred women and men including American Red Cross, Auxiliary, independent and student* members. Each volunteer has a story, a reason for serving; each shares the priceless gift of self. They are valued as gifts from God.

For many people, the chance to do something meaningful is the most important reason to volunteer. You will be a part of CHI Memorial’s mission to continue the healing ministry of the Church.

CHI Memorial publishes Cheerio Chats, a quarterly newsletter for volunteers. To review the most recent newsletter, click here.
