Volunteer Services

History of the Auxiliary

A group of Enid women were invited to tea on the afternoon of May 2nd, 1955. From that group, the Women’s Auxiliary of Enid General Hospital was formed. For the first two years, members accomplished much in promoting and advancing the welfare of the hospital. In April 1957, the first 10-hour course for in-service volunteers was given. Now, in the spring, orientation classes are given for Junior Volunteers, and frequent adult orientation classes are held. Hospital volunteers now account for more than 22,000 hours of service each year.

Benefits of Volunteering

We all have busy lives and it’s hard to find time to spare, however, the benefits are enormous to you, your family and your community. Volunteering provides not just social benefits, but individual health benefits, as well. Those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability and lower rates of depression late in life than those who don’t volunteer. Fundamentally, volunteering is about giving your time, energy and skills freely. Unlike many things in life, there is a choice involved in volunteering. As a volunteer you have made a decision to help on your own accord, free from pressure.
