We were blessed with the volunteer labor of 428 individuals during 2016, who gave us 15,860 hours of service valued at $459,534. Our volunteer pool is representative of the population we serve, including members of many faiths, as well as beginning healthcare providers to tenured physicians and dentists.
More often than not, we receive more offers to volunteer than we can accommodate. Regarding volunteers who are matriculating students completing a clinical rotation at Good Sam Gwinnett, those opportunities are in high demand and often schedule more than six months in advance.
All volunteers must print and complete the Volunteer Form below. You may deliver the signed forms by mail to the attention of Greg Lang, or as a pdf attached to an email addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
