Volunteer

Volunteers are the heart of VIM Berkshires. We rely on their clinical, management and fundraising skills. We appreciate their creative energy and dedication to service.

“The most important part of the job for me is the absolute gratitude I get from the patients. VIM has resurrected many feelings that led me to into medicine in my youth. Volunteering here has re-energized me.”

Robert Davenport, MD

“I enjoy driving VIM patients to appointments because I believe everyone has a right to see a doctor when they’re sick. I also enjoy hearing the stories of patients – it makes me feel very fortunate and grateful.”

Sal Angelo, VIM Volunteer Driver
