As a teenager I did a lot of volunteer work in the Lehigh Valley Hospital.  I volunteered during the summer months in the Emergency Room while I was on summer vacation.  I really enjoyed it.  I was there several days a week and worked with the patients and doctors.  It was a great experience for me.
When I came across the list of volunteer opportunities, I was amazed there were so many to choose from.  Plus, they are located at various locations in the Lehigh Valley as well as surrounding areas.
Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, share your talents and gifts and interact with others.  It’s also very rewarding.    According to LVHN, more than 1700 people volunteered their time at various LVHN locations.
Please let others know about these wonderful volunteer opportunities!
