You make us better

For National Volunteer Week we thank and honor the 475 volunteers at Community General Hospital. That, I believe, is the largest team of volunteers at any hospital in Syracuse.
Last year Community's volunteers donated 55,000 hours of service for the patients of our community. They truly are "People in Action."

Thank you Tom. We are very proud of and grateful for all the hard work the volunteers offer to Community General. They are an incredibly diverse group with the average age of the adult program being 74 and a terrific group of 40+ junior volunteers each summer. We have artists, vocalists, homemakers, athletes, company presidents, factory workers, business owners and even an ex-government official. We have teams of husbands and wives, grandparents and their grandkids and siblings. They are wonderful group of people and they truly are a piece of our family here at CGH. Thank you for recognizing their efforts here on your blog.

Those who can - do. Those who can do more volunteer.
