Southeast Georgia Health System honored all of its volunteers at a special National Volunteer Week Luncheon on Monday, April 7, at the Jekyll Island Convention Center. The theme for the celebration was "Volunteers … Images of Caring."

Honored were members of the Brunswick and Camden Campus Auxiliaries, Volunteens, First Steps Program volunteers, Therapy Dogs International volunteers, members of the Ministerial Alliance, Coastal Medical Access Project (CMAP) volunteers, and members of: the Glynn-Brunswick Memorial Hospital Authority, Camden Campus Advisory, Cooperative Healthcare Services, Inc., and the Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation, Inc.

According to Kristin Doll, director of Volunteer Services, 334 volunteers from the Brunswick Campus Auxiliary and 91 volunteers from the Camden Campus Auxiliary contributed hours during the past year.

"From March 1, 2013 to Feb. 28, 2014, our Brunswick Campus Auxiliary members performed 32,193 hours of service to the Health System," Doll says. "And according to the Independent Sector, the leading authority in calculating the value of volunteer hours, those hours translate into a dollar value of $716,294. From March 1, 2013, to Feb. 28, 2014, Camden Campus Auxiliary members performed 12,990 hours of service, translating into a dollar value of $289,027. Their dedicated, loyal service helps our organization accomplish our goals and inspires us all to do great things."

During the awards ceremony, Enoch Prow was named Brunswick Campus Auxiliary Volunteer of the Year and Willie Williams was named Camden Campus Auxiliary Volunteer of the Year.
