Citrus Memorial Hospital recently announced seven newly elected volunteer officers who will serve for one year.
“We are fortunate to have leaders in our volunteer organization who will dedicate themselves to additional time and effort as officers,” said Penny Zaphel, Manager of Volunteer Services. “This organization is primarily a fundraising and charity group that releases donations to area non-profits that pertain to the healthcare field.”
Sandi Phillips has led CMHS Volunteers Inc. as the President for the past year. She served as President of the Auxiliary prior to the formation of the new group. Phillips has been a volunteer for over 22 years and currently serves at the Welcome Desk. “I see nothing but positive and good things for our hospital,” said Phillips. “It is a pleasure to serve there.”
The Hospital gift shop, located in the main lobby, is the main source of income for the non-profit group. All profits from the gift shop are dispersed as scholarships to students interested in the healthcare field or to organizations that promote good health and healthcare research.
