Hutcheson Medical Center named Dorris Bonner as the hospital’s Auxiliary Volunteer of the Month for September. Ms. Bonner has volunteered at Battlefield Imaging for over six years.
“I am 86 years old and proud of it!” said Ms.
Bonner, who enjoys getting to talk and listen with the patients as she escorts them back for imaging procedures. “Volunteering makes me feel good, and I get more from it than I give.” She credits Catoosa Trans-aid with helping her get to and from her volunteer shifts at Battlefield Imaging.
Chareen Humble, Manager of Volunteer Services at Hutcheson, stated she admired Ms. Bonner’s commitment to volunteering. “Dorris has shown tremendous dedication in the six years she has volunteered with the Auxiliary at Battlefield Imaging. Since she cannot drive, Dorris has to go out of her way to get to and from work and I think that shows great commitment.”
As Volunteer of the Month, Ms. Bonner 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.
