Can I volunteer at PACS if I'm not a Seventh-day Adventist? Absolutely. We gladly accept any application. Each will be screened to see if the applicants are able to meet the job criteria. We find that people are most comfortable working here if they have some Christian background, but this is not necessary.
Will you help me if I'm not a Seventh-day Adventist? Of course. All are welcome regardless of religious beliefs, ethnic origin, age, gender, or geographic location.
