Regional Medical Center Auxiliary celebrates National Volunteer Week
The Regional Medical Center (RMC) Auxiliary will recognize its volunteers for their contributions during National Volunteer Week, April 15 – 22.
At its annual awards luncheon on Tuesday, April 17, the auxiliary will name its Volunteer of the Year, install new officers and present pins to 46 volunteers for their hours of service.
National Volunteer Week is designated each year to recognize the service, dedication and commitment of volunteers in healthcare organizations across the country. The theme for this year’s celebration is “Volunteers are the Heart of Our Team!”
“Volunteers are essential to the strength and vitality of our community and our hospital. We are fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers who selflessly give their time and energy to help our staff care for patients and support the hospital,” said Charles Williams, FACHE, president and CEO of RMC.
The auxiliary has more than 150 adult and junior volunteers who collectively donated more than 20,000 hours of volunteer service to the hospital last year.
“The RMC Auxiliary provides support for many RMC services, including the Summer Enrichment Program, the Christmas Tree Lights Program, the RMC Foundation and Pink Ribbon Luncheon,” said Mary Berry, director of Volunteer Services at RMC. “They truly go above and beyond to assist the RMC community. This year’s theme says it all – volunteers are the heart of our team.”
