Being in the hospital can be boring and lonely at times. Bring your energetic and enthusiastic self to our hospital to help engage patients in small group social interactions. These may include Sunday Bingo, special events, prayer services, games, crafts and more.

In addition to in-person experiences, we are trying to build our stock of games, craft supplies and single-use items such as puzzles, books, magazines, personal care products, etc. If you, your company or a community group wish to collect donations, we'd be so appreciative!
