Volunteer Program Supports Innovation and Staff Education

Valerie Chamberlain, Volunteer Specialist and Lyn Ruiz, Asante Ashland Gift Shop Volunteer

The Asante Ashland Volunteer Program recently presented a $16,000 donation to the Ashland Community Hospital Foundation. The gift represents profits from the Asante Ashland Gift Shop from the 2018 fiscal year, which ended in September. Gift Shop volunteers led by Volunteer Specialist Valerie Chamberlain, include Kathy Fraser, Joan Hedges, Susan Rosenlund, and Lyn Ruiz. After careful consideration they chose to direct the donation to two priority areas: the Innovation Fund and Staff Education.

According to Dawn Dille, long-time Volunteer Coordinator who passed the baton to Valerie earlier this year, shared the contribution made this year is one of the largest donations made by the volunteer program to the foundation. Thank you to our volunteers and to all of you for shopping in our hospital gift shop.
