Cuero Hospital Volunteers belong to the Texas Association of HealthCare Volunteers, a not-for-profit organization committed to promoting and advancing volunteer service in hospitals through a variety of activities and fundraisers. Cuero Hospital volunteers may work directly with patients serving coffee, delivering mail and newspapers, assisting in Radiology or simply welcoming patients and visitors with a friendly smile and greeting. Indirectly, they serve the hospital by making tray favors for patients and activity bags for young patients, as well as stockings for the holiday newborns. CRH volunteers' fundraising efforts have allowed us to update equipment and furnishings for the hospital and Wellness Center. These fundraising activities include operating the hospital's Wishing Well Gift Shop, bloomingdeals Resale Shoppe, sponsoring jewelry sales and more.
Membership is open to all with an interest in community health, patient care and hospital service. For more information, call Kathy Simon at 361.275.6191 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
