“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
This year, from April 10-16, we’re celebrating National Healthcare Volunteer Week. This week gives each of us a special opportunity to recognize the support that volunteers provide to our patients, families, hospital staff, and our community. It is the perfect occasion for us to focus on the many significant contributions that our volunteers make individually and collectively every day to the WakeMed mission.
Please take this opportunity to thank a volunteer and celebrate their service during National Volunteer Week. Promote awareness about healthcare volunteers and their contributions of time and service. Write a note, or simply take the time to stop and say ‘thank you’. Volunteers really make a difference in our community, and we appreciate it!
To give you a better idea of their contributions, here are a few of the FY15 outcomes from activities of WakeMed volunteers:
1,410 individual volunteers…
More than $84,438 of funding…
At least 136 departments…
At least 4,272 patient visits were conducted…
At least 4,665 visits to patients were completed…
WakeMed volunteers represent each generation between ages 16 and 95. Our volunteers engage in a wide range of activities, including:
Volunteers represent healthcare providers of the future, the workforce of today, the workforce of yesterday, and those who are dedicated to community support who have either never required nor had an opportunity for monetary compensation.
THANK YOU so much for your support in celebrating National Healthcare Volunteer Week.
