On April 20th I attended the Thirty-Sixth Auxiliary Awards Celebration and Luncheon and it reminded me of how appreciative I am for the service the GVMH Auxiliary provides our organization.
To date the Auxiliary has gifted $934,925 in the form of cash and patient equipment. The Auxilians have donated 669,446 hours of volunteer time over the past thirty-six years.
Without our Auxiliary our organization would not be what it is today. I would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to our Auxiliary for their gifts of time and money.
I want to say a special thank you to Pat Kampman. I’m fortunate to have a close relationship with Pat and she’s like family, my son actually calls Pat “Grandma Pat”. Pat received an award at the banquet for 16,000 hours of service to the GVMH Auxiliary.
To put 16,000 hours into perspective consider this; there are 2,080 in a full-time work year. Pat has donated almost 8 years of employment to GVMH!
