The best gift you can give a child is simple – your time. At Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital, we have several volunteer opportunities for you to spend time with children ages 0-18. We have children of all ages, from a variety of backgrounds, with a variety of needs. If you could read a book, play a video game, or even color with a child, your time would be valued and appreciated. Perhaps you could sit with them while they have an X-ray, or surf the Internet with a teenager in the teen computer room. For more information about volunteering, call 704-403-1376.
