Why Volunteer at St. Joseph?

Reasons for volunteering vary. For students, volunteering is a way to gain valuable work experience in a possible career field, or to earn necessary service hours for high school graduation requirements. For adults, it's a way to stay active and contribute valuable personal skills, or to return, in a personal way, the gift of health received through medical care at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center. Regardless of your reason, everyone experiences the personal satisfaction gained from helping others in need.
