At the heart of Bikur Cholim of Raritan Valley are our dedicated volunteers and we always welcome new volunteers. Our volunteer coordinators will work with you to find the areas that work best based on your individual preference and timetable. However, the timing may vary with regard to filling a volunteer role, as it may take some time to best match the interests and abilities of our volunteers with the needs of the community. An immediate need may be ready to be filled, in which a new volunteer can take action right away. Or, volunteers may be placed on a call list – such as for food preparation or driving patients to appointments – and coordinators will follow up with volunteers as the need arises. Bikur Cholim volunteers who would like to begin volunteering at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to visit patients, must first become a registered volunteer at the hospital. Our coordinators will happily help you through that process.
