Health System Brunswick Auxiliary Names Jim Crandall Volunteer of the Quarter

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: March 15, 2012– Jim Crandall, pastor of Jekyll Island Baptist Church, was named the Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick Campus Auxiliary’s latest Volunteer of the Quarter during the group’s quarterly luncheon held Thursday, March 1, on the Brunswick Campus.

Crandall has been a member of the Auxiliary since 1992 and currently volunteers in the Operating Room Prep and Recovery Area assembling patient belongings kits. Each of these kits contain the items a patient will need during his or her hospital stay, including a gown, blanket, blood pressure cuff and more. In addition to volunteering at the Health System, he serves on the Board of Manna House and is the retired minister of education at First Baptist Church in Brunswick. His wife Patti is also a member of the Auxiliary and volunteers in the Gift Shop. The couple has three daughters and six grandchildren, including one granddaughter who served as a Volunteen at the Brunswick Campus last summer.

“Jim is always positive, joyful and loves to joke,” said Kristin Doll, director of volunteer services. “His lifetime of service to others truly embodies a spirit of commitment to making the world a better place for others. We are so happy to have Jim as part of our team.”

Volunteers, from teenagers to seniors, work throughout the Health System at both the Brunswick and Camden campuses, as well as the Senior Care Centers in Brunswick and St. Marys. To find out more about volunteering, contact Kristin Doll at 912-466-1071 or visit
