If you are interested in volunteering, there are many ways to make a difference and help our employees, patients, visitors, and community.
These opportunities range from helping with health education programs and special events to fundraising and even hospice care. Our Volunteer Services staff works with all volunteers to find the job that best fits each person's interests, skills and schedule.
We also have a Teen Volunteer Program for students at least 14 years of age. To be a part of this program, volunteers must be able to commit to two hours of volunteer work per week. Registration begins each May. Apply by completing the volunteer application below.
All volunteers are required to complete an application, interview, health history, TB skin test, background check, general orientation and specific orientation and training for their particular position.
Over the years, volunteers have provided hundreds of shawls to help comfort and provide warmth to Black River Memorial Hospital (BRMH) Hospice and Homecare patients in the Jackson County area. Patients receive a comfort shawl upon entry to the hospice or homecare program. BRMH is once again seeking volunteers who know how to knit or crochet and are interested in helping.
Sue Lindberg, BRMH Homecare-Hospice biller, is coordinating the collection of the shawls and said, "We love being able to provide these shawls and our patients really appreciate them. A slightly bulky yarn made up in the preferred pattern is very soft and comfortable." Patterns are available for printing for private use, from the BRMH website with permission from shawlministry.com.
Completed shawls can be dropped off at:
B-Home Services and Supplies
311 County Highway A
Black River Falls, WI.
Please attach a note with the name and address of who made the shawl. Also, include the number of hours it took to make it.
