In honor of National Healthcare Volunteer Week on April 10-16, Campbell
County Health is highlighting some of our volunteers.
Meet Sherry Percifield! Sherry just started volunteering with CCH by making
these beautiful Angel Blankets. Often parents do not have a blanket when
they lose a baby due to an unexpected miscarriage or stillbirth. That's
where Sherry's creation comes in. CCMH's
Maternal Child Unit now has a supply of these hand-quilted, very special blankets.
"These special babies need to go to heaven in something special,"
"There's definitely a need for these blankets, and parents will
appreciate it—we appreciate it," says Josie LeMaster, Maternal
Sherry also does K9 Therapy with special needs kids at the
Campbell County School District and has plans to attend the upcoming
Hospice Volunteer Training later this month—applications are due Friday, April 15.
Thank you, Sherry for all that you do for CCH! We appreciate you.

At CCH, there are more than 340
youth volunteers who are coordinated by Michele Ridgeway. In 2015, volunteers
gave 10,072 hours, which is valued at over $210,000! Our dedicated volunteers
give their time and expertise for the betterment of Campbell County Health,
Campbell County Health, Campbell County Medical Group,
Hospice, Pioneer Manor and more. Volunteers reap many personal benefits—the
accomplishment of performing worthwhile work, visiting with old friends
and meeting new ones. Our volunteers make a difference in someone's
day simply by being there.
There are many
volunteer opportunities available, such as clerical support, administrative assistance, pastoral care/chaplains, childcare, Gift Shoppe sales, hospice, Information Desk/Welcome Desk,
music in the lobby, and the summer Junior Volunteer Program. Hours are
flexible to meet the needs of the volunteer.
