OUR IMPACT

Whether through our own personal experience or that of a friend or family member, we understand that many of the circumstances that bring people to the Medical Center are not without anxiety.  Our service committees help to soften the sterile atmosphere and bring some joy to our patients, visitors and staff. 

As a volunteer organization, we are first and foremost committed to helping Morristown Medical Center bring the best level of healthcare to our community. We are a thriving group with many fundraising skills and our fundraising businesses and events offer benefits to the community above and beyond the causes they fund.
