Children’s Hospital Leadership on Volunteerism

Allan Goldbloom2

“Each volunteer at Children’s brings a unique and personal commitment to helping us fulfill our mission to children and  families. As a group, our volunteers have always been part of the “heart” of Children’s, and we are deeply grateful to them for their time, their energy, and their passion.”
Alan Goldbloom, MD, President and CEO

Dave Brumbaugh

“There is no “I” in team, but there is a “U” in volunteer!
Thank “U” for being a member of Children’s care team!”
Dave Brumbaugh, Vice President of Human Resources

Roxanne Fernandez

“How very fortunate we are to have people who have found how to serve, and then chosen the children and families at Children’s.  Whether they are sharing a book or a meal, providing a hand or a strong shoulder, their gifts come from the heart, and also from a very good soul.  We are all better off because we know them.”
Roxanne Fernandes, Chief Nursing Officer

Children’s Hospital Volunteer Services Staff


“Volunteers give of their time, caring hearts and expertise to make a difference at Children’s.  Your guidance, willingness to listen, support, appreciation, passion and high standards of family-centered care are what brings the volunteer program to life, offering a partnership in the care of our pediatric patients and families.

Thank you for creating a caring environment that enriches each volunteer and allows them to share in Children’s mission.”

Sandy Bergeron, Director of Volunteer Services

Lisa MunsonWhenever I am chatting it up with my friends, family or just people I meet, and they ask me where I work, my response is always something like, “I work with the greatest group of people ever: the volunteers at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota!” Our volunteers come from so many varied, interesting and different walks of life, and each brings caring, compassion and comfort to the patients and families that we serve. Thank you!  And please know that I am in awe of each and every one of you. You make me smile every day. :)”

Lisa Munson, Volunteer Coordinator


“Our volunteers are some of the most fun & fabulous people around! It’s truly inspiring to work with individuals who are motivated by genuine spirits of kindness and compassion. Their energy and enthusiasm consistently brightens my days, and I’m so grateful for all that they do to make Children’s a happier place for patients & families!”

Jenna Barke, Volunteer Coordinator


“Volunteers at Children’s Hospital are incredible! I love supporting volunteers in a setting where I can be confident that volunteers make a huge difference, and have a rewarding experience at the same time. It’s awesome to work in an office where volunteers are constantly coming in with great stories, plans for their careers, updates about their lives, and smiles on their faces.”

Kristi Kehrwald, Volunteer Coordinator


“We have an incredibly strong volunteer department due to the dedicated, creative, and kindhearted volunteers on our roster! Our volunteers make an impact every time they walk through Children’s doors, greeting patients, staff and families with a smile, and brightening the day of every child they spend time with. Whether volunteers are delivering books, scanning materials, making deliveries, or rocking babies, we appreciate all that they do, and I am honored to have them on our team!”
