The CMH Volunteer Association has been providing assistance to Cambridge Memorial Hospital for 130 years. Many volunteers are needed to provide ongoing support to our patient service and revenue producing programs. All volunteers are members of the Volunteer Association and develop a commitment to volunteering at CMH. The Volunteer Association is always in need of volunteers who are able to donate time to enhance services to our patients and visitors. The minimum age to volunteer at CMH is 16 years old.

CMH is fortunate to have 300 volunteers who provide thousands of hours of their time to the patients and staff at CMH. During 2012-2013, the hospital received more than $120,000 in donations from the Volunteer Association; this money primarily went to the purchase of much needed medical equipment.

The CMH Volunteer Association has four revenue producing services:

  1. The Tim Hortons Coffee Shop is owned by the CMH Volunteer Association. It is open to staff, patients and visitors.
  2. The Red Poppy Gift Shop is a revenue service of the CMH Volunteer Association. It is operated with the help of many dedicated volunteers. The Gift Shop carries flowers, toiletries, baby and other assorted gifts. Located in Wing A, Level 1 off the Main Lobby. It is currently open 10am-4pm on weekdays. All proceeds from the Gift Shop go to purchase medical equipment and supplies for the hospital. 
  3. The Recovery Room Shop is a retail shop owned and operated by the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Volunteer Association. Located at 38 Ainslie Street North, Unit 102 (N1R3J5) in Cambridge, Ontario this second-hand store offers a wide range of high quality goods. All of the proceeds made at the Recovery Room shop go directly to the hospital for much needed medical equipment. Hours of operation are Monday to Friday 10:00am to 4:30pm and Saturdays from 9:00am to 1:00pm. You can make a donation of clothes or other slightly used goods by taking them directly to the shop.
