This is the local hospital in my hometown and I learned so much from my time there. I was a junior volunteer for three consecutive summers and worked alongside nurses in different areas. My late mentor, friend and volunteer coordinator, Donnie Shafer, believed in showing teens how to care for people. That is exactly what I learned! God gave me the opportunity to help people in a very vulnerable state: a hospital setting. I had specific jobs that included discharging patients, making and changing beds, and organizing charts. This program, along with fellow volunteers and nurses taught me that I can serve in more ways than one.
