Hospital Auxilians Distribute “Thank You” Bananas
At the September meeting of the Memorial Health Meadows Hospital Auxiliary, auxilians wrote words of encouragement on 500 bananas, such as “Thanks for all your hard work,” and “May God bless your efforts.” The bananas were distributed to the hospital staff and employees to thank them for their service to the community. The bananas were donated by area grocery stores including Food Lion, Food World, Thriftway, and Walmart. “We had so many bananas that we were even able to donate some to the employees and staff of Meadows Park Health and Rehabilitation, The Oaks at Bethany Skilled Nursing and Assisted Living, and Oxley Park Health and Rehabilitation nursing homes,” commented Auxiliary President Lisa Parker. The Auxiliary is a volunteer organization whose mission is to support the local hospital and community. Volunteers work a weekly shift of four and a half hours in various areas of the hospital including the Front Desk, Radiology, the Cancer Center, and the Gift Shop. Volunteers also attend scheduled meetings and banquets. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a volunteer with the Auxiliary, please contact the Assistant to the Director of Volunteer Services, Judy Gibbs at (912) 537-5801, extension 4.
