Looking for seniors to join the San Leandro Hospital Volunteer Program with a rich history of service! Conveniently located next to the San Leandro Senior Community Center and the San Leandro FLEX Shuttle Service stop

Since its inception in 1972, members of the Volunteer Auxiliary have donated in excess of one-half million hours of volunteer service to the hospital. Among the current group of volunteers are individuals who have been with the Auxiliary from the start as well as those who have only recently joined the group.

Over the years, through proceeds from the Gift Shop, the Auxiliary has awarded in excess of $400,000 to students pursuing careers in health care. Past scholarship recipients have gone on to become physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and one even became the Chief Nursing Officer of San Leandro Hospital!



Answer phones and respond to requests for volunteer support. Volunteers may be called on to deliver flowers and gifts for patients, deliver specimens, deliver medical records, deliver for central supply, greet patients and visitors, provide general hospital information, direct patients and visitors to their desired destination, escort visitors to their desired destination, and/or provide wheelchairs to patients in need.


Volunteers in the Gift Shop must have good customer service skills, since they handle the hospital’s retail facility. Volunteers working there are responsible for the cash drawer and providing a positive experience for the customer.
