Nanticoke Health Services joined communities across the nation in celebrating National Volunteer Week from April 14 to April 20, 2019. “Nanticoke’s volunteers continually touch lives in our community through their service within the organization,” notes Kelly Novak, CAVS, Director of Volunteer Programs. “Our volunteers are always eager to give back to the community and volunteered over 45,000 hours for 2018, valued at over a MILLION dollars! It is such a privilege to work with our volunteers and I am incredibly proud of the effort they continually put forth for our community!”
Nanticoke showed appreciation to its hundreds of volunteers who spread hope and cheer to the patients, visitors, and staff at Nanticoke each and every day. Volunteers at Nanticoke can be found giving their time and talents from the Board Room on the ground floor all the way up to the fifth floor in the patient tower. All of the individuals who volunteer in clinical, supportive and administrative areas are genuinely dedicated to Nanticoke.
The highlight of Volunteer Week was the Volunteer Appreciation and Recognition Banquet held on April 18 at the Heritage Shores Clubhouse in Bridgeville. At this banquet, many of Nanticoke’s volunteers were recognized for their dedication and commitment. Nineteen volunteers were inducted into the 2018 500 Hour Club for giving over 500 hours in one year. Four volunteers were inducted into the Lifetime 5,200 Hall of Fame for their epoch time and achievement at Nanticoke.
