Outreach & Community Service

Mission of Mercy

Join us as we participate in the Mission of Mercy events. Volunteers are needed to assist in every aspect of the event. "General Volunteers" help with tasks such as monitoring the patient line, patient check-in/out, volunteer check-in/out, patient escorts, hospitality, IT support, translators, etc. "Clinical Dental/Medical" volunteers (licensed professionals or students working towards a degree in dentistry or medicine) provide direct patient care: medical pre-screen, dental triage, x-rays, dental services and post-op.
