The Ambassadors Volunteer Committee is dedicated to coordinating volunteer opportunities that benefit
Packard Children's.

There are so many ways to get directly involved in the hospital and to meet some of the patients with a minimal time commitment. As a matter of fact, most of the opportunities are one-off and do not take more than an hour or two. We are now accepting sign-ups online. Please email Ashley or Marisol if you have questions about any of the opportunities below.
