HAMC VolunTeens, ages 12 to 18, perform many of the same services as adult volunteers.
  • Teens do most of their volunteering when school is out;

HAMC Auxiliary:
All volunteers become members of the HAMC Auxiliary. In addition to providing volunteer services, Auxiliary members raise money in support of HAMC and Haaland Estates. Over the years the Auxiliary has raised tens of thousands of dollars for medical equipment, furnishings for public areas, and a multitude of other needs. Annual Auxiliary fundraisers include:
  • AuxiliaryFall Bazaar;
  • Tree of Giving;
  • Singing Valentines;
  • Spring Salad Luncheon;
  • Heart to Heart Gift Shop.
At the annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon, volunteers are recognized for their contributions and HAMC’s Volunteer of the Year is announced. Heart of America Care Center has produced more than one North Dakota Long Term Care Association Volunteer of the Year. More information can be found on the NDLTCA's website.
GSHS Foundation:
Most of the volunteer work of the GSHS Foundation happens in the boardroom. At least twice a year the Foundation board of directors and volunteers get out and do some serious fundraising with two fun events: the Charity Golf Classic and the Greatest Needs Gala.

If you're interested in helping with these events, contact Foundation Director Tony Coffman at 701-776-5455, ext. 2149.
