A visit from a friendly face can make a world of difference for a young patient at Valley Children’s Hospital. For groups or individuals who are interested in volunteering, but are not able to commit to a regular volunteer schedule, we welcome you to consider the Big Hearts for Little Hands program, led by our Child Life team. The program was designed for infrequent volunteer visitors and offers an opportunity to volunteer up to three times a year.
