The St. Luke's Auxiliary was founded in 1952 to support St. Luke’s Hospital (renamed Mission Bernal in August 2018) with fundraising and volunteerism in the spirit of fellowship and celebration. One of the auxiliary’s signature programs is "Find a Need and Fill It," where auxiliary members volunteer to purchase needed materials such as clothing for homeless patients, reading materials for the chapel, or small amounts of equipment on an as-needed basis.
California Pacific Medical Center offers a wide array of volunteer opportunities at various locations on weekdays, weekends and evenings. We especially need help during the day on weekdays. Volunteer opportunities are available in the following areas:
- Patient services
- Administrative and clerical services
- Knitting and crocheting projects
Benefits of Volunteering
"There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up." — John Andres Holmes
Volunteering is a wonderful gift that can be given to patients and the community. Volunteers meet new people, make new friends, use their skills and acquire new ones. They feel a sense of accomplishment and perhaps the most important benefit is the satisfaction of knowing they are contributing to their community and making a difference.
