Volunteers are needed in the Children's Hospital New Orleans Gift Shop. Our Gift Shop is a warm and welcoming environment that provides a vast array of items for customers to purchase. It is a great way to support children, families, visitors and staff at Children's Hospital.

Excellent customer service skills and never met a stranger attitude are a must. Duties consist of helping customers in finding whatever they need, welcoming and interacting with customers, learning and performing checkout procedures including the cash register and other payment methods. Gift shop volunteers take orders, make gift bags, inflate balloons, stock shelves and keep the gift shop tidy. Being a gift shop volunteer is a fun way to keep active and interact with a diverse group of individuals from all ages.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Children’s Hospital New Orleans (CHNOLA) volunteer services department is to provide dedicated, caring volunteers to serve our children receiving medical care, their families, visitors, and employees. Volunteers augment the work of hospital personnel so that they have more time to care for patients. Volunteers elevate the patient experience, make an invaluable contribution to the quality of patient care, and help make our hospital continue to be an extraordinary place for children to receive their health care.

Description

Volunteers have been an important part of Children’s Hospital since it opened its doors in 1955.

We provide volunteer experiences in both clinical and non-clinical areas.

Non-clinical areas are the Gift Shop, Playrooms, Teen Lounge, Amy’s Art Cart, Comfort Cart, Spiritual Care, Parenting Center and Materials Management.

Clinical areas are the Post Anesthesia Care Unit, Outpatient Dialysis Unit, Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and acute care nursing Units.

We also collaborate with the following community programs to provide additional services for our children in the hospital, Visiting Pet Program, Songs for Kids Program, and Angel’s Place.

There are several opportunities available for community volunteers to pool their talent and energy on special projects to benefit our young patients and their families. The Development Department can help groups find volunteer opportunities at one of our signature events, including Boos at the Zoo and other fundraising events and projects.
