April 2016 Volunteer Spotlight: Sherry Percifield

April 2016 Volunteer Spotlight: Sherry Percifield

In honor of National Healthcare Volunteer Week on April 10-16, Campbell County Health is highlighting some of our volunteers.

baby blankets

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," says Sherry.

"There's definitely a need for these blankets, and parents will appreciate it—we appreciate it," says Josie LeMaster, Maternal Child Director.

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.
