From all of us at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS, for your smiles, positive spirits, time, and compassion for the patients and families we serve! We are thankful for your service!
“Please thank the excellent volunteer that helped me today. He was fantastic with my patient and played with him for several hours in CVCC this afternoon. I have not seen my patient this happy during this admission, and the volunteer is to thank for that.” -CVCC RN
“A mom stopped by today and mentioned that the two things that really make her son’s day at Children’s are: X-Box and VOLUNTEERS!!” -Family Resource Center Employee
“Every time a volunteer approached, it brought a smile from [our child]. They brought her crafts to work on, got her hooked on Bingo, played games with her, played cards, played Wii, and basically did anything she asked of them. Each volunteer spoke with our child honestly and intellectually. They brought true friendship and encouragement to our daughter. And, again, they took time from their lives each day to spend time with our daughter. THAT is priceless to us!” -Family Comment (check out their guest blog post here: Family Thank-You Letter to Children’s Volunteers!)
