Thank you, volunteers; Good Samaritan honors volunteers at recognition breakfast.
Downers Grove, Ill. (April 5, 2008) —
The Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital Volunteer Services Department will host its 32nd Annual Volunteer Recognition Breakfast on Saturday, April 12, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the Drury Lane, Oakbrook Terrace.
“The volunteers provide a variety of services to Good Samaritan, everything from walk-around jobs to sit-down jobs,” explains Sharon Bodziak, Volunteer Services Manager. “There’s something for everyone,” she says.
At this year’s breakfast, 442 volunteers will be honored for contributing over 60,472 hours of time and talent to the hospital during 2007. In addition, six deserving teen Candy Striper volunteers, all planning on entering a healthcare field, will each be awarded $1000 scholarships.
“The volunteers of Good Samaritan act as Eucharistic Ministers and pet therapists; provide staffing for blood drives, the information desks, the surgical reception area, the gift and resale shops; visit hospital patients; craft hand-made items such as baby hats; and provide clerical and greeter assistance,” says Bodziak.
Two of the volunteers recently were awarded the hospital’s Mission, Values and Philosophy (MVP) award for their work in developing Clara’s Closet, the Auxiliary’s vintage fashion clothing show. The Auxiliary is the fundraising arm of the volunteers.
Beth Dreiling, Downers Grove, and Donna Wadycki, Westmont, assembled the Clara’s Closet fashions primarily from vintage clothing donated through the Auxiliary’s resale shop, the Gingham Tree.
“The volunteers are our helping hands; men, women and teens, many of whom have discovered friendships and fun while serving the hospital,” says Bodziak. “The breakfast is a small way of honoring the contributions they make.”
For more information on volunteer opportunities at Good Samaritan Hospital, contact the volunteer services department at 630.275.1181.
Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital thanks all its volunteers for the contributions they make to the hospital.
