February 2017 Volunteer Spotlight: Sherry Percifield

Volunteers enhance the care provided to patients at Campbell County Health in many different ways. This new feature will highlight one of our CCH volunteers and the important contributions they make to the organization and the community.

Sherry Percifield has been volunteering with Campbell County Health for about a year. Her specialty is making and donating “Angel Blankets”.

Often parents do not have a baby blanket when they lose an infant due to an unexpected miscarriage or stillbirth. That’s where Sherry’s creations makes a positive difference for families in what is certainly their worst possible time. The Maternal Child Unit at Campbell County Memorial Hospital now has a supply of these hand-quilted, very special blankets when the need arises.

Sherry not only gives her time to CCH, she also does K-9 therapy with special needs children at Campbell County School District, bringing her dog Addison to interact with children who have issues like autism and may have trouble relating to others. She also visits children who are having home life issues, just to give them the experience of the unconditional love given by a dog.

Sherry embodies the spirit of volunteerism—giving her time for the opportunity to help others. Thank you, Sherry for all that you do for CCH and this community.
