Bumper “T” Caring Clowns are a volunteer organization dedicated to healing through the power of humor for hospitalized patients, families, friends and caregivers. Children’s Hospital clowns are volunteers and clowns who visit adult patients are MUSC employees who volunteer their time. In addition to MUSC volunteer orientation and training, Caring Clown volunteers complete a comprehensive clown training program focusing on the art of gentle humor.  For information, contact Katy Kuder, 792-0858.
