BERLIN – During the annual celebration in April, the Atlantic General Hospital Auxiliary presented a check for $50,000 to the Atlantic General Hospital Foundation and honored the continued dedication and volunteer service of their members.
Volunteers support AGH by donating their time and expertise in every aspect of the hospital and health system, as well as in the community, providing more than 40,000 hours of service to the hospital annually. From the mail room to the front lobby, these volunteers make an extraordinary impact on the day-to-day operations of Atlantic General Hospital and Health System.
Volunteers also serve on hospital teams and committees, providing crucial insight and community support to Atlantic General Hospital.
New Atlantic General Hospital Auxiliary officers were sworn in during the celebration. This includes President Laura Rohe, Treasurer Richard Buccheri and Recording and Corresponding Secretary Jackie Choate.
The AGH volunteers’ passion and dedication to serving the Eastern Shore community is unwavering and they are
truly appreciated for everything they do. For this year’s celebration, volunteers were recognized for their years of dedicated service to Atlantic General Hospital.
In addition to honoring the volunteers’ years of service, a special recognition was given to student volunteer Rina Dirickson who has spent years volunteering her time at the Thrift Shop every weekend. Mary Lou Jones was also commended by the Worcester County commissioners’ office for her 30 years of dedicated service to Atlantic General Hospital.
