Genesis Honors Volunteers During Volunteer Week
Zanesville, OH (April 6, 2015) – Genesis HealthCare System will honor volunteers during Genesis Volunteer Week, April 5 to 11. The events during the week include a banquet celebration for more than 350 volunteers who donate their time and talents to the organization. Of those, 111 volunteers will receive awards for hours or years of service.
Among the award recipients are Terri Carpenter and Pat Frederick with 45 years of volunteer service to the hospital. There are three volunteers being honored for giving more than 10,000 hours of their time to Genesis. Charles White is being honored for 20 years as a Hospice volunteer, and Janet Coffey, Melody White and Marlene Work are being awarded for the top hours in Hospice. See the list of volunteers being honored at the banquet.
Volunteers perform many duties at Genesis, from transporting patients, answering phones, helping Hospice patients and their families, and assisting with office work. They also are an integral part of raising funds for Genesis through book fairs, plant sales, the annual Tree of Love project and other events. The fundraisers contribute to the Genesis Volunteers’ $1 million pledge to the new Genesis Hospital.
