The volunteens just wrapped up a record-breaking summer for the total number of hours contributed and were recognized with a day full of pizza and bowling to "chill" before they head back to school for the fall. In between all of the laughter and I-pod music the teen's were asked what they enjoyed most about volunteering this summer...
“Getting to help people in need;” Matthew.
“Taking people where they needed to go and hearing their stories;” Sarah.
“Seeing people light up when I delivered flowers to their room;” Sam.
“Building relationships with other volunteens and people at the hospital;” Mary Jo.
“Getting to help people in need, which really helps me with my future career in nursing. I am just sad that the summer has come to an end so quickly;” Brannah.
“I really enjoyed volunteering. My favorite part was helping Shelly in Outpatient Services. Helping patients is also a big part of why I like it;” Maria.
“The best thing about volunteering at Saint Mary’s is helping others;” Felicia.
“Hospital employees were always willing to answer questions. They were always very kind;” Ellie.
