By volunteering at Harrington, you’ll gain personal satisfaction and experience, expand your social network and receive recognition for your efforts. Being a volunteer is much more than donating your time — volunteers help make a health care system successful by creating connections and friendships.

We try to match your interests and skills, offering you a wide range of placement opportunities that include:

  • Auxiliary member
  • Environmental services
  • Special projects
  • Pastoral outreach
  • Gift Shop
  • Occupational & physical therapy
  • Mail delivery
  • Office assistance
  • Patient Pals
  • Transport services
  • Dietary & nutrition services
  • Silver knitters/sewing & crafters committees

Special volunteer opportunities are available at our Cancer Center. Harrington is also one of the few hospitals in the country with an all volunteer team running its Gift Shop.

To make you feel comfortable and competent, we provide training in all areas. If you are interested in volunteering at Harrington or any of our affiliated campuses, please fill out an application form. Tuberculosis tests are required.

Magazine Donations

Magazines for our book cart for patients are not purchased. We survive on the generous donations of our community members and staff. We encourage our neighbors and friends to consider ordering magazine subscriptions for Harrington HealthCare.

If you have recently purchased magazines at home you have finished reading, we encourage you to drop them off at Harrington for our patients and their families. Do you have airline frequent flyer miles you are going to lose? When an airline offers magazine subscription for points, please consider ordering them for the Harrington’s magazine cart.

If you are so generous to do so, use the following address: Volunteer Services, Harrington Hospital, 100 South Street, Southbridge, MA 01550. This is the link to the company that works with the majority of airlines; you just need your frequent flyer number: http://www.magsformiles.com/about.htm
