Volunteers at Citrus Memorial Hospital recently made a significant donation to the Citrus County Family Resource Center. Sandi Phillips, president of the CMH volunteer group, presented the donation of $2,000 to Family Resource Center executive director, Ginger West.
"At this time of the year any assistance is appreciated by this group that serves so many of our own Citrus County friends and neighbors," said Phillips. "They were grateful to be surprised by this donation from the volunteers at Citrus Memorial Hospital."
Citrus Memorial Hospital's volunteers are part of a non-profit group that supports as many community charities as possible with funds collected from a gift shop they run in the main lobby of the hospital. They also provide scholarships to outstanding student volunteers.
About Citrus Memorial Volunteer Services
The Citrus Memorial Volunteers began in 1957 as an Auxiliary. After the hospital was purchased by HCA, a non-profit group call CMHS Volunteers Inc. was formed to manage the Gift Shop and other fundraising efforts that would benefit students with scholarships and support non-profits groups within the community. Today, Citrus Memorial Hospital's volunteers include over 350 men and women working in over 20 departments - plus 230 clergy serving patients and families.
