CRMC celebrates National Volunteer Week

CRMC volunteers gather to be recognized at annual luncheon

CULLMAN — Cullman Regional Medical Center hosted an annual volunteer in-service and appreciation luncheon. The volunteers were recognized for their time, dedication and service to CRMC and the community. The volunteers consist of Auxiliary also known as “Pink Ladies”, Adult and Hospice Volunteers. During the summer, a junior volunteer program is offered to students who qualify and are seeking ways to give back to their community.

During the program, volunteers were refreshed on hospital standards, codes, policies and procedures and were treated to a special lunch followed by games and fellowship.

National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. It’s about demonstrating to the nation that by working together, we have the fortitude to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals.

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each subsequent year, with literally thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. With the fourth year anniversary of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, the creation of the Volunteer Generation Fund and the resonant call to serve from the President, this year will be even more energizing and inspiring.

For more information regarding volunteer opportunities at CRMC, call 256-737-2600 or visit www.crmchospital.com/volunteer.
