Ways to Help


The MUSC Women’s Club (MUWC) can be your starting place to volunteer. Some of its members volunteer within the Medical Center, Children's Hospital, and Hollings Cancer Center. It also holds a variety of events to support the patients at MUSC. Members choose the projects or events they want to participate in.

Posies for Patients

Posies for Patients is an annual event sponsored by the Medical University Women’s Club (MUWC). MUWC members donate funds for the flowers and vases and our volunteers join together to create and deliver over 200 flower arrangements to patients at MUSC’s Main Hospital. The smiles from patients and their families make the effort memorable for everyone, and is a wonderful way to get involved.

Teddy Bear Day

One of the most popular MUWC projects is Teddy Bear Day.

New stuffed animals are gathered throughout the year and gifted to MUSC patients. Recipients truly appreciate this gesture of good will — it cheers up even the most despondent patient.

All are welcome to donate stuffed animals at the Volunteer Office.
