Floyd Valley Honors Volunteers
(Le Mars) -- More than 200 volunteers were recognized during an award luncheon at the Floyd Valley Hospital this morning. All told, the volunteers contributed over 10,800 hours of service to the local hospital during this past year. Yvonne Law was given an award service pin for contributing 2500 hours during the past five and a half years. She says she started volunteering for the hospital gift shop as a way to keep busy after her retirement.
Law says depending upon the week, but generally will average at least 10 hours each week. Nancy Augustine serves as the chairperson for the Floyd Valley Hospital Auxiliary. She says the hospital needs and appreciates the contributions of service time and financial donations made by the volunteers.
Augustine says the hospital auxiliary generates revenue through special fund raisers such as bake sales and the gift shop items.
The auxiliary chair says the volunteer organization also provides "E-R bags" to young people.
Augustine says the E-R bags contain crayons and coloring books, puzzles, or toys.
