Great River Friends and Volunteer Services

Great River Friends is a community of more than 700 generous volunteers and financial contributors who support Great River Health Systems. In November 2006, the hospital auxiliary and Great River Health Systems' volunteers, under the direction of the Volunteer Services Department, joined forces under a new name -- Great River Friends.

We expanded our focus to serve all of Great River Health Systems, which includes Great River Medical Center, Great River Hospice, Great River Klein Center, Heritage Medical Equipment and Supplies, Heritage Pharmacies and many clinics.

Great River Friends is dedicated to helping patients and their families, staff members and our community through our gifts of time, talent and treasure.

Mission: To enjoy and support Great River Health Systems and the community through the gifts of time, talent and treasure

Vision: Great Service, Great Support, Great River Friends

A portion of your regular shopping dollars can be donated to Great River Friends through iGive.

How iGive Works

iGive is as simple as it sounds. iGive members can generate donations by shopping at more than 900 stores. There are no costs, obligations or hidden fees.

iGive is a free service to causes and members. It's all automatic. You don't need to enter codes, notify the store or iGive. When iGive members shop via special links (starting at the web site, the iGive Newsletter or having installed the iGive Button), tracking enables us to identify the purchases of each iGive member with a member identification number. Causes always receive all of the donation amount, which is advertised on our website. receives fees separately from the amounts that go to the cause. You shop the same way as you would without starting at iGive.
