Volunteer opportunities are available through the Debbie-Rand Memorial
Service League, Inc.
Auxiliary to the Boca Raton Regional Hospital
What is the purpose of the League?
The purpose of the League is to coordinate all volunteer services, to raise
funds and to initiate beneficial activities in support of the not-for-profit
Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
Why be a volunteer?
Volunteers make a better world. You will make new friends as you serve
the needs of your community. Always remember - a gift of time is just
as important as a gift of money! The rewards are gratifying – over
and over volunteers are heard to say, “I get back more than I give.”
Each year hundreds of people serve as Debbie-Rand Memorial Service League
volunteers, meeting the needs of patients, their families and the staff
at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. Our volunteers are an integral part of
the hospital: acting as hospital ambassadors to patients, employees and
visitors; assisting patients and staff on a nursing unit; raising funds
for equipment and services; serving on an event planning committee; helping
with our Pet Therapy program; delivering flowers and so much more. They
include high school and college students, adults and retirees and even
former patients. They play valuable and meaningful roles in the lives
of our patients throughout our hospital.
