Volunteers Make Torrance Memorial Go 'Round

You see them everywhere at Torrance Memorial. They are young and old, male and female, a rainbow of backgrounds, cultures and creeds. A few you could call real clowns. Some even have four legs and a tail. They are Torrance Memorial volunteers, and we depend on their generosity and good spirits to help us provide the top quality care on which our community depends.

Altogether there are hundreds of hospital volunteers including adults and high school students. Adult volunteers are invited to join our Volunteer Auxiliary. Whether volunteers are escorting patients or staffing the information desk, delivering flowers or simply sharing a smile, each and every day they go about their many tasks here at Torrance Memorial with enthusiasm and good cheer. It is impossible to overestimate what our volunteers' efforts mean to Torrance Memorial.
