are extraordinary people who make patients

and their families feel more comfortable, and

also provide assistance to the hospital staff.

Volunteers can be found smiling, greeting the

public, walking visitors to their destinations or

popping their famous popcorn. It is estimated

that the MCHS Auxiliary has donated more

than four million hours of service to the

hospital throughout the years and that the
