New Year’s Resolution – Give Back to the Community

Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla Holds Open House for Prospective Volunteers

WHAT:
Volunteering can be a rewarding life experience, it gets you involved in your community and makes you part of a longstanding American tradition. From volunteer fire departments to local schools, to libraries and other entities, non-profit organizations survive because of volunteer efforts. Likewise, volunteers are a vital part of the day-to-day existence at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla.
