Volunteer at WPH

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at White Plains Hospital. Our volunteer corps has grown to more than 500 dedicated and talented individuals who together donate over 60,000 hours of their time annually. Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community, help those in need, meet interesting people and work with dynamic healthcare professionals. Each year, the Hospital recognizes its many volunteers at the Annual Volunteer Reception.

The phrase "makes a difference" may be overused, but it expresses what I feel at the end of the day as a caregiver partner when I have helped someone in distress. Having loaned an ear is often all that’s needed for me to go home with a good feeling that I have helped someone have a better day.  —Stephie, Caregiver Support Program

As a high school student, my life is often packed with tests, sports, and homework. However, volunteering at the hospital is a highlight of my week because I get to be a part of making someone's hospital experience a little less stressful. I am so glad I decided to start volunteering in my freshmen year because of the people I have met and helped and the better person I have become.  —Lily N., Information Desk Junior Volunteer, 16
