Picture yourself volunteering in Mulberry Gift Shop!
The Mulberry Tree Gift Shop is a lovely retail shop located in Newark-Wayne Community Hospital. It is a fundraising enterprise to benefit the NWCH Auxiliary. Funds raised go back to the hospital in the form of renovations, services and enhancements. The Gift Shop is stocked with giftware, seasonal items and supplies. It is open to the public and welcomes family members of patients, as well as staff and community members, to come in and browse in this delightful shop. The shop is entirely manned by volunteers; shifts are four hours long. Note: Gift Shop volunteers receive a 25% discount on purchases.
