Volunteers have been serving St. Joseph’s Hospital since 1937 when a small group of women met in members’ homes to sew for the hospital nursery. Over the years, the role of volunteers expanded to its current Partners organization, assisting patients and visitors and providing service to hospital staff and the community. The Partners also raise funds for the hospital through a variety of events and activities, including operating the Well Wisher Gift Shop at the hospital.
