Southeast Georgia Health System Volunteer Services recently announced Marilyn Krakowski as the Brunswick Campus Fall Volunteer
of the Quarter and Sherelyn “Sherri” Wade as the Camden Campus
Fall Volunteer of the Quarter.
Krakowski has volunteered in the
Emergency Care Center (ECC) since she joined Volunteer Services in 2013. “Marilyn shares
her positive attitude and kindness with patients, visitors and team members
while she is volunteering,” says Peggy Tuten, president, Brunswick
Campus Volunteer Services. “Through the years, she has volunteered
with and without a partner volunteer during her shift in the ECC. During
the months when she did not have a partner’s help, she kept showing
up, working hard and giving her very best. She is very conscientious of
her time; if she arrives a little late, she will work later to complete
her four hour shift. She has also been a regular baker for our volunteer
bake sales and makes delicious pecan muffins!”
Krakowski refined her customer service skills while working at the Jekyll
Island Visitor Center. In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering with
Manna House and spending time with her son, daughter and two grandsons.
Wade has been a volunteer in the
Camden Campus Gift Shop since 2019. “Sherri always has an upbeat attitude, a willingness
to help wherever and whenever needed, and conveys so much joy when she’s
volunteering,” states Kathleen Worthing, president, Camden Campus
“One of the aspects of volunteering that I really enjoy is all the
wonderful people I have met with such interesting life stories,”
Wade says. “It has enriched my life and has given me a deep appreciation
for the many different people who volunteer at the Health System.”
In her spare time, Wade and her husband, Carl, enjoy traveling to visit
their kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. She is also an avid book reader.
More than 250 volunteers generously share their time and talents to assist
patients, visitors, and team members at the Southeast Georgia Health System
Brunswick and Camden campuses, as well as the Senior Care Centers in Brunswick
and St. Marys. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, contact Kristin
