ZANESVILLE, OH (April 11, 2018) – Genesis HealthCare System will honor volunteers during National Volunteer Week, April 15 to 21. The events during the week include a banquet celebration for more than 370 volunteers who donate their time and talents to the organization.
Of those, 78 volunteers will receive awards for hours or years of service, including George Kackley and Wanda Hagley both of Zanesville, who have each shared over 12,000 hours of their time.
Also being celebrated is the goal met by the Genesis Volunteers who pledged in 2012 to donate $1 million to the Genesis Heart & Vascular Center at Genesis Hospital. The goal was met recently with funds raised through book fairs, plant sales, the annual Tree of Love project and other events.
Volunteers perform many duties at Genesis, from greeting patients and families, transporting patients, answering phones, helping Hospice patients and their families, and assisting with office work.
Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer at Genesis can call (740) 454-4700 or visit the Genesis website at genesishcs.org and click on “Ways to Give” at the bottom of the home page.
