As we get ready to celebrate Volunteer Appreciation Week next week (April 17-23), we want to take a few moments to thank these dedicated members of our community for supporting our healing mission with their own hands. As a show of our gratitude, the Volunteer Services department will be hosting an Appreciation Luncheon for our volunteers on Wednesday, April 20. We also encourage you and your colleagues to join in thanking our volunteers when you see them … especially next week.
