Opportunities to Make an Impact
Is your company, club or organization looking for ways to impact others and make our community a healthier place to live? Consider these opportunities:
Methodist Volunteers In Partnership (VIP)
Methodist VIP provides volunteer support to all members of the health care team at Methodist Hospital. Share your gifts of time, energy and expertise.
Nebraska Methodist College - The Josie Harper Campus
NMC has several opportunities for interested volunteers, including the NMC Food Pantry and Mobile Diabetes Center
Ultrasound Lab Volunteer-Model
Serve as a model to help NMC students practice their imaging skills
NMC Food Pantry
Supply Nebraska Methodist College students with a meal and some peace of mind when finances are tight.
- Organize a company, club or family food drive to support the NMC Food Pantry. To arrange a donation to the pantry, contact Lisa Johnson at (402) 354-7073.
Time, convenience, cost and transportation are universal barriers that can delay or discourage lifesaving mammogram screenings. We want more access, more convenience, more survivors.
Your organization can enhance its wellness program by bringing Methodist Health System’s fully accredited Mobile 3-D Mammography Coach directly to your employees.
This convenient, on-site breast screening service encourages busy employees to take the time to be screened and demonstrates corporate commitment to employees’ health.
We do not charge your organization for hosting our coach. In return, we invite our business partners to “pay it forward.” We encourage donations to Methodist Hospital Foundation in support of Harper’s Hope or to help cover the cost of screenings for the uninsured. We are proud that no one has ever been turned away due to an inability to pay.
By donating a book, you help our youngest patients and their families fill a vital “prescription” for reading. Every child between the ages of six months and five years receives a new book at their well-child check.
Visit our ShareOmaha page to view our wish list and a list of recommended books on Amazon.
- Organize a company, club or family book drive to benefit Reach Out and Read. To arrange a drop-off, contact Methodist Hospital Foundation at (402) 354-4825.
Provide essential clothing items to Methodist patients in need. For a list of needed items, visit our ShareOmaha page and click on the Amazon Wish list icon.
Impact lives by helping uninsured patients monitor their diabetes at home. Visit our ShareOmaha and click on the Amazon Wish tab, which includes glucose test strips and monitors.
Donating gift baskets to current neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) families is a meaningful way to give back during the holidays or any other time of the year.
Purchase and package some items that our NICU families enjoy the most:
- Books for parents to read or read to their baby
- Bottled water
- Gift cards (Target, Walmart, iTunes, coffee shops or local restaurants)
- Keurig K-Cups
- Lip balm
To ensure the safety of our patients, we are unable to accept food items and knitted clothing, including hats and blankets. If you wish to donate your baby’s gently used clothing, toys or baby items, we encourage you to donate to our community partners at Lydia House or Project Hope.
Throughout the year, we combine fundraising with a bit of fun, even some fitness.
We have “as needed” opportunities to volunteer at special events such as the Herbek Hustle Memorial 5K Fun Run and the Methodist Golf Classic.
Maybe you or your organization would like to organize a fundraising kickball tournament, team-building 5K fun run or after-hours wine tasting. Put your creativity to work to benefit Methodist Health System!
- If you would like to host a fundraising event, contact Methodist Hospital Foundation at (402) 354-4825.
- These events are planned and held independently in a manner consistent with our mission.
Your cash donations shape the next generation of care at Methodist and touch thousands of lives each year.
- Whether it’s in the area of cancer care, charitable care, community service or education, 100 percent of every gift benefits the programs or projects YOU choose.
Select Methodist Hospital Foundation as your charity of choice on AmazonSmile, and Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to support our mission.
