Gold Coats

“Gold Coats” offer Perry services to visitors and staff 

New volunteers are always welcome.

Do you enjoy walking in a climate-controlled environment, meeting new people and providing a helpful hand to others? Whether you prefer lots of exercise or a stationary job, want to socialize or prefer to work alone, we have room for you in our family of caregivers. On the day of volunteering, Gold Coats may enjoy a free meal in our Park Avenue Café. 

The pay may not be great… but the smiles and the “Thank You” that you receive from everyone make your experience a lot of fun!

Gold Coats provide the following services:

  • Provide a warm Perry "Welcome" to patients and visitors
  • Staff information and welcome desks at Perry's Medical Office Building, Visitor and Outpatient Entrances
