Memorial Health System Volunteers
- 1The American Red Cross Gray Ladies
The American Red Cross Gray Ladies volunteer their time by offering friendly, personal services of a non-medical nature to patients at Memorial Hospital. They provide hospitality such as delivering cards and offering coffee, tea and juice to patients and visitors. These volunteers continue a tradition that began in the wake of World War I. The Gray Ladies in Abilene are one of the last American Red Cross Gray Ladies groups left in the United States.
- 2Summer Youth Volunteer Program
This program, offered through the MHS Volunteer Corps, is designed for area students ages 14 to 18. This unique program offers students an opportunity to volunteer in various MHS affiliates.
