VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

Our goal is to match your interests and strengths with the volunteer needs of each department.

Another exciting volunteer opportunity: the Stonewall Jackson Hospital Auxiliary

CSJH proudly acknowledges that we have one of the strongest hospital auxiliaries in the state. If you wish to become “tuned in” to your community hospital, here is a chance to channel your energy within a well–organized group. By combining volunteer efforts, the auxiliary has the ability to make enormous improvements at CSJH. The purpose of our auxiliary is to offer comfort and support to those who visit, to render financial assistance to the hospital, and to promote the health and welfare of the community along side of CSJH.
