Volunteer Guidelines

Tracking Your Service

It is important to sign in each time you are in attendance. You should sign in at either the Volunteer Services office or via e-mail at The Volunteer Services office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Notifying Volunteer Services that you are on campus allows us to report and recognize your service to the leadership of Fox Chase Cancer Center.


Absences are an unavoidable part of volunteering.  We understand that there may be times when it may be difficult for you to make your scheduled volunteer time at Fox Chase.  Please call your direct supervisor as soon as you know that you are unable to come to the Center. If you are able to come in on another day, please discuss this with your supervisor.

Or, call the Volunteer Services office at 215-728-2804 to report your absence.

Fox Chase’s dress code prohibits all healthcare volunteers from wearing blue jeans, sweatpants, shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops, and open-toed shoes.

Meal Vouchers

Meal Vouchers are available to all volunteers on the day of their service. These vouchers may be used in either the cafeteria or the snack bar, located in the West Building lobby. Meal vouchers may be obtained in the Volunteer Services office at the time you sign in or out.


All Fox Chase volunteers may park in the hospital parking lots as well as in the West Building garage. Volunteers may not park in any area specifically set aside for outpatient parking. You must display your Fox Chase parking sticker whenever you park on campus.

Cell Phones and Other Electronic Devices

Volunteers should not make or receive cell phone calls while they are providing services at Fox Chase. Pagers, beepers, ipods, etc., should also be off while on duty as a volunteer.
