Beene Named Hutcheson's Auxiliary Volunteer Of The Month For October

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Hutcheson Medical Center named Glenda Beene as the hospital’s Auxiliary Volunteer of the Month for October.  Ms. Beene has volunteered at the hospital’s Battlefield Imaging and Fuller Cancer Center for seven years.

 

Ms.

Beene said that helping others gives her the most satisfaction.  As a volunteer, Ms. Beene does a variety of tasks, including bringing patients back from the lobby, answering the phones, and transporting items to the lab.  “When a patient first comes to the Cancer Center, I tour the patients and give them an informational video.  I like the relationship that I have with patients, and I enjoy working with the employees.  I miss them when I am not here.”

 

Chareen Humble, Manager of Volunteer Services at Hutcheson, said that Ms. Beene is someone upon whom others can always depend.  “Glenda always helps out where possible and is a great volunteer.  I wish we had 200 more volunteers just like her.” 

 

As Volunteer of the Month, Ms. Beene received a basket with gift certificates and gift items from The Hutch Gift Shop.  She was awarded use of the Volunteer of the Month parking space and her name will be added to the recognition plaque by the hospital’s information desk.

 

To find out more about Hutcheson’s Auxiliary volunteer program or how to volunteer, please call Chareen Humble at 706/858-2134.
