More than 140 volunteers from Fairfield and Westchester, who contributed more than 46,000 hours, were honored at the Annual Greenwich Hospital Auxiliary Luncheon.
Stacey Green, the director of Volunteer Services, spoke to the bond volunteers develop with patients, families and hospital staff.
“Volunteers come to healthcare organizations to help patients and to give back to their community. But what keeps them coming back is the personal connections they make with the patients and the way they are embraced by Greenwich Hospital,” said Green.
