Published DateLACONIA — The LRGH Auxiliary Gift Shop located in the Atrium lobby at Lakes Region General Hospital is in need of interested individuals to volunteer to work in the hospital gift shop.
A volunteer in the LRGH Gift Shop has the opportunity to meet and assist the many visitors to the hospital, patients and staff who come into the shop looking for just the right card to brighten someone's day, a cheery floral bouquet, a special gift or that sweet "pick me up" treat.
There are a variety of shift openings available Monday to Friday that include mornings, afternoons and some evenings. There is also a need for some weekend coverage and those hours can be made flexible according to volunteer availability.
Funds raised by the LRGH Auxiliary Gift Shop help support the projects and programs of the Auxiliary, which in turn benefit patient care in the LRGHealthcare community. Each year the Auxiliary donates several thousand dollars to purchase equipment or provide support to programs that assist in patient care at Lakes Region General Hospital. Much of that funding donated is a result of the proceeds earned in the operation of the LRGH Gift Shop.
Those who have former retail experience, would like to gain that experience or simply want to donate time to a job that offers the opportunity to interact with a variety of people while helping a charitable effort are encouraged to contact the Auxiliary Gift Shop Committee.
Those who are interested in volunteering or who would like more information can contact the LRGH Auxiliary Gift Shop Chairperson, Sue Dalton, at 293-2236.
