Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The volunteer organization was founded in 1960 as the Wesley Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary. Wesley Hospital became affiliated with the United Presbyterian Church in 1964. Hence, the name changed to Presbyterian Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary. In 2003, following the hospital's Joint Operating Agreement with the state of Oklahoma, Presbyterian Hospital and the University Hospital Volunteers merged services. Now established as The Medical Center Volunteers, the organization strives to provide the patients and families of OU MEDICAL CENTER with a variety of patient services. In the past 40 years, the organization has evolved to become an integral part of our hospital services. The volunteers manage the hospital gifts shops, information desks, art galleries and other services focusing on providing patient/family support and comfort. Proceeds from our gift shops allow our organization to support patient services, education, and community health programs.
