Mission Statement:

Since 1959, Friends has been a partner of the U-M Health System, helping to promote the health, welfare and education of our community.

Friends is a board-governed, volunteer-staffed, non-profit community organization that administers and manages four Health System Gift Shops. The revenue generated from these shops provide funds for patient programs and educational projects.

If you would enjoy supporting patient programs and health education...if you care about helping people when they need you could be our kind of Friend:

Additional Information:

Our non-profit Gift Shops are looking for volunteers to cashier and/or assist with merchandise in the stock room. Our greatest need is for cashiers who interact frequently with our employees, patients and their families. NO retail experience required. We offer training, flexible hours, monthly scheduling and Free Parking.
The Friends Gift shops consist of over 60 volunteers and paid staff. We have four (4) shops as follows:
  1. Main Gift Shop - located near the cafeteria inside UMHS

  4. 'Friends with a Heart' Gift Shop - located in the Cardiovascular Center (CVC) of UMHS
