During National Volunteer Week, the CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial Volunteer Auxiliary recognized several of its members who collectively dedicated nearly 15,000 hours of service to the hospital staff and guests. Whether it is popping popcorn for academic scholarships, answering phones or helping family members in hospital waiting rooms, Memorial wouldn’t be the same without this special group of women and men.
