Allied Services Integrated Health System recently held a luncheon during National Healthcare Volunteer Week to recognize its Volunteers’ dedication and devotion to patients, residents, clients, consumers, and families.


Volunteers at Allied Services are divided into two groups. The first group raises funds by selling candy, pretzels and cookies on the Allied campus on a daily basis, as well as through special projects like bakes sales, craft shows, raffles, and car cruises. Beneficiaries for the funds they raise include, but are not limited to, youth scholarships at the dePaul School for Children with Dyslexia; nursing scholarships for Allied nurses’ continuing education; fulfillment of wish list items in the various departments; gifts for long term residents; Ryan’s Run; and pediatric parties.


The second group are volunteers who work hands-on with long term residents, consumers, and outpatients. They keep the residents comfortable and make the outpatients feel welcome. They are the companions, the comforters and the transporters of those in need. They deliver the mail, the newspapers, the flowers, packages and smiles to the residents. They are the greeters and coffee makers who make all who enter Allied feel as though they are part of the Allied family.


For information on Allied Services or on how to become a volunteer, please visit AlliedServices.org.
