Benefits of Volunteering

Benefits of Volunteering 

For many people in Asheville and the surrounding communities, volunteering at Mission is an important and valuable part of their routines. We try to make volunteering possible for anyone who is interested by offering flexible schedules and work hours as well as a variety of volunteer options to suit different personalities, interests and skill sets. We even have opportunities available for couples to volunteer together!

Our volunteers gain a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment from the work they do here — being able to help people feel better is one of the greatest "perks" of our work.

Other incentives include:

  • New and lasting friendships with other volunteers and staff
  • Firsthand experience working in an award-winning hospital
  • Active involvement in an important community service
  • Enhanced job skills and resume

Mission also offers a number of other benefits to our volunteers:

  • Free annual flu vaccine, TB test and health fair
  • Free Mission meal ticket (must meet required hours of service)
  • Discounts to Mission's Gift and Bean Shops
  • Mission Medical Center Pharmacy discount on prescription and over-the-counter drugs
  • Free volunteer uniform
  • Discounts from local merchants
  • Mission newsletters
  • Invitations to special events and social activities
  • Opportunities to participate in educational classes
  • Annual award and recognition events
  • Flexible hours in a warm, friendly working environment

If any of these benefits sound like something you'd enjoy, we invite you to get started with the application process or contact us to learn more about how you can become a Mission volunteer.
