McLeod Health Clarendon recently recognized area teens for their participation in the hospital’s sixth annual Teen Summer Volunteer Program. An appreciation dinner was held at the hospital on Tuesday, August 9 to thank the teens for their service. This year, 21 teens volunteered 1,506 hours throughout the hospital.
During their summer vacation, these teens volunteered to work directly with hospital healthcare professionals for at least 20 hours per month gaining experience in a variety of healthcare occupations.
"For eleven weeks I had the opportunity to work with 21 incredibly committed Junior Volunteers. This impressive group of young people made a significant contribution to our hospital in such a short time. Their countless hours of service made a difference in the lives of our patients, families, visitors and hospital staff. I have been overwhelmed by their dedication, their desire to make a difference and their willingness to give back to their community. I am proud of each and every one of them and the impact that they made in serving our hospital and community,” said Stacy Mosier, Volunteer Services Coordinator.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, Mosier encouraged all of the teens to return for next year’s Summer Teen Volunteer Program. For more information on how to become a volunteer at McLeod Health Clarendon, please call Stacy Mosier at (803) 435-5287.
