SPH Gift Shop Volunteers Contribute!
Submitted by Lily Derksen, Gift Shop Manager, Volunteer Resources
Did you know that at any given time there are 60 volunteers at the St. Paul's Hospital Gift Shop alone? We have wonderful volunteers who are giving back to St. Paul's because they have been patients here, and new immigrants to Vancouver who are practicing their English, and many students who are working towards careers in the medical field!
Emily J. is one of those volunteers! She has volunteered with us for the past 3 years and has contributed over 500 hours!!! She has been a great team member, training many new volunteers and assisting patients and staff and visitors regularly. She is moving on after having learned many skills and made friends, too. Thank you to Emily, and all our wonderful volunteers, who give us so much!
Come on down to the Gift Shop and meet the volunteers while you shop & support a great cause! Our hours are Mon - Fri, 8am - 8pm, Sat & Sun, 12 - 4pm.
Note: We will be closed on Monday, Sept 2, 2019 for Labour Day.
