Giving generously of their time, talents and treasures

On March 26, 1894, fifty Winona women gathered to form a new organization, the Ladies Hospital Aid Association, which would be affiliated with the then one-month-old Winona General Hospital. Dr. D.B. Pritchard asked the group to help furnish the new hospital, and their first fundraiser netted $8.10.

For the past 125 years, the Winona Health Volunteers have generously given their time, talents and treasures to benefit our patients, residents and families. Since 2000, they have contributed more than $1 million dollars to Winona Health programs, equipment and scholarships from their numerous fundraising efforts.

“The generosity of our Volunteers has an immeasurable impact on what we do here at Winona Health,” said Rachelle Schultz, Winona Health president/CEO. “We recognize the many ways volunteers help our patients, residents, visitors, families and staff. Their ongoing support strengthens local healthcare and, therefore, our entire community. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to each of them.”

The Winona Health Volunteers are always looking for energetic and enthusiastic individuals willing to share their valuable time and talent. More than 350 active volunteers contribute thousands of hours of service to Winona Health through Winona Health and senior services. If you’re looking for a fulfilling opportunity to dedicate your time through an experience rich in history and meaning, become a Winona Health Volunteer.
