SCH's 22 volunteers were honored at the annual banquet at Maxfield's Restaurant on April 25. Collectively, this group contributed 3,957 hours of volunteering during the hospital's most recent fiscal year and over 31,000 total hours since the group began in 1994.
"I am so honored to be a part of this volunteer group," said community relations assistant and volunteer leader, Lois Westfall. "They not only volunteer their time, as a hospital department, they also 'give back' to the hospital financially. This past year, the volunteer group contributed nearly $6,600 toward equipment purchases, kid's goodie bags, the purchase of springtime flowers that beautify the hospital each year, and much more. They are so very generous and I can't thank them enough for their support to me and to Sheridan Community Hospital."
Besides day-to-day volunteer duties, the SCH volunteers give freely of their time with helping out at the hospital's annual health fair, health screenings, fund-raising events, and special projects.
