With a long history of serving,
volunteers at KGH are a remarkable group of people said KGH volunteer
coordinator Marty West. They help with the "No One Dies
Alone" program, Auxiliary Gift Shop, Hospice, Pastoral Care,
and New Horizons Long
"One of the most visible volunteer roles is working at the Gift Shop run by the Auxiliary," said volunteer Carolyn Wilse. "We raise money for special hospital purchases. Last year we donated more than $52,000 from Gift Shop sales that purchased wheelchairs, a new birthing bed, and items for Med/Surg, New Horizons, Speech Theraphy, and more."
"Some hospital volunteers give a few hours a week, some much more. But, every hour helps," said West. "When you realize how busy some of our volunteers' lives are, it's amazing they find time in their schedules to help at all. Each volunteer role is important because it touches the lives of those we serve. We get very close to people, that's why a fingerprint check is a part of our application process," she said.
Those interested in becoming
a volunteer at KGH should call Marty West at 254-5144.
