On Friday, April 21, Anderson Hospital held its Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon in recognition of National Volunteer Week at the Leclaire Room in Edwardsville. We were so excited to be able to celebrate our Auxiliary volunteers IN PERSON once again!
Volunteers were treated to a delicious meal from Bella Milano and amazing entertainment from the Edwardsville High School Choir’s acapella voices of Bel Canto and AcaFellaz!
The Auxiliary presented the hospital with its annual donation during the event. The donation, which reflects funds raised in 2022, totaled $75,000. This annual donation is made possible through the Auxiliary Gift Shop and fundraising events the volunteers hold/sponsor throughout the year.
Today, the Auxiliary has over 100 active volunteer members and is an integral part of Anderson Hospital. Active Volunteers provide direct services to the Emergency, O.B. and Outpatient Surgery Departments, as well as being “on call” from the Volunteer Office. They manage information desks at public entrances including those at the Cancer Center and Wellness Center. Volunteers are the sole proprietors of our hospital’s Gift Shop managing staff, purchasing inventory, and all inventory management.
“The Auxiliary remains as dedicated and instrumental as ever in the continuing operation of Anderson Hospital,” said Keith A. Page, Anderson Hospital President and CEO. “We thank them for their many hours of service and commitment to making a difference in Anderson Hospital.”
