OMC is Seeking Caring Individuals to Volunteer

OMC is Seeking Caring Individuals to Volunteer

Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) is seeking volunteers to work at the information desks, gift shop, thrift store, as chaplains, and as hospice volunteers. Some of the duties of an OMC volunteer include greeting visitors, giving direction, escorting visitors to destinations, keeping coffee stations neat and tidy, wheeling discharged patients to cars, and deliveries of flowers, mail and meal trays. Those working in the gift shop or thrift store will do retail type work such as stocking shelves, keeping things neat, pricing items and making displays.

Volunteers work at OMC because they want to help others. That enthusiasm is contagious. They have fun and enjoy the work that they do and in turn they make visitors feel more at ease and welcome. They do a variety of duties that allow the paid staff to continue helping others without interruption and allows for quicker service to those who are waiting.

There are as many reasons as there are volunteers but the one thing that almost all of them say is that at the end of the day it feels really good to know that you helped someone. Volunteers are people who want to make a difference.
