Volunteers raise over $18K in 2017
An investment inremarkable healthcare
Investments are intended to lead to positive results. As defined by the dictionary, when we invest our money, time and energy in a particular charity or organization, it’s natural to expect a worthwhile result – a result intended to promote goodness.
Last year, Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center experienced outstanding results in healthcare, and we owe our heartfelt thanks to nearly 250 volunteers, including junior volunteers, home volunteers and chaplains who shared their time, money and talents. Their contributions were responsible for so many positive healthcare experiences, raising over $18,000 in 2017.
Our staff and volunteers are an “inclusive team of purpose-driven people inspired and united by our passion to care for each other, our patients and our community.” Their giving is indeed a testimony to Novant Health’s people credo and philosophy.
Because of a volunteer, a worried parent may have worried less. Because of a volunteer, a grieving visitor experienced compassion and care when receiving heartbreaking news. Because of a volunteer, a treasured veteran may have received flowers or a handmade card during his or her hospital stay. Because of a volunteer, a woman newly diagnosed with breast cancer may have received a comfort bag and book of encouragement. Because of a volunteer, Novant Health Brunswick Medical Center is a remarkable place for your healthcare!
Whether you’re retired, semi-retired, work part-time with extra hours on your hands or simply have a passion for healthcare, Brunswick Medical Center has a place for your gift of self, time and interests.
Can you quilt or knit? Are you crafty? Our volunteers knit baby blankets, lap blankets, baby caps and booties. They lovingly create prayer squares and prayer shawls for cancer patients. With the whip of a sewing needle and thread, teddy bears and stuffed animals come to life for our children receiving care in Brunswick County. Volunteers greet anxious patients at the emergency lobby desk with a calming voice and spirit. Another volunteer at the annual Oyster Festival in Ocean Isle Beach mans the soda and water tent, while others educate the community on the services offered at Brunswick Medical Center.
