Volunteer Opportunities

Join the Mercy Guild – a 50 plus year tradition. We have nearly 300 volunteers who commit their time and energy to the Mercy Medical Center Redding community. Make a difference – find your place among the Mercy Guild.

Benefits Of Being A Volunteer

Volunteers at Mercy Medical Center Redding continually report that they feel a sense of satisfaction and self-worth when they give their time. In addition to knowing you are helping others, volunteers benefit from the camaraderie and lifelong friendships they develop in the program. Volunteers receive a complimentary meal for each shift served. They can also receive a free annual flu vaccine when available.
