Recording Volunteer Hours

All volunteers working at UNC Medical Center or Hillsborough Hospital must sign in and out at one of the kiosks (which are located at the Memorial Hospital Info Desk, Women’s Hospital Info Desk, Cancer Hospital Info Desk, and Hillsborough Hospital workroom). All volunteers may view and print their hours in the “My History” tab on the web kiosk sign-in at Volunteer Services in Memorial Hospital.

If you volunteer somewhere other than UNC Medical Center or Hillsborough Hospital, or you forgot to log in your hours at a kiosk, volunteers may submit their hours using the online volunteer hours submission form. Volunteers should tally their hours by each month and submit at the end of each month.

Holidays or Days of Inclement Weather

You are not expected to volunteer during the holidays, however, we welcome any of our volunteers to continue working during those times if they wish to do so and are able to walk to the hospital to help out when they can.

Submit Your Hours

In case you forget to log in your hours at the Volunteer Services kiosk or if you volunteer off-site, you may submit your hours online.
